- like with all devices, xend will prepend /dev/ to the device name.

xend appends /dev/ if it's not already there, but it should be
safe to leave it on.

well, then that needs to be changed in xend because if I change my
config file to include the /dev/ part, it fails the same way as
observed by Bjoern Sessler.

Error: Error creating domain: [Failure instance: Traceback: 
xen.xend.XendError.VmError, vbd: Segments not found: uname=phy:/dev/vgtest/root8



thanks, it works now. prepending the /dev part was also my second thought too, as the xenU kernel didn't noticed the device called 'swap' or 'root'. first i thought the /dev/vg0/device wasn't recognised correctly and xen would create that dev-entry. but anyhow, i didn't recognised any problems yet and its working with really good performance on that raid0-set
