Although... kernel 2.6.16-rc1... how did you do that? "clone hg http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6-xen.hg"; results in 2.6.15 sources, doesn't it? Have you manually patched it up to 2.6.16-rc1? And then applied some patches (again) for xen?

After the hg clone finished, I noticed that 2.6.16-rc1 is the current kernel version. I'm compiling it right now. Do we'll see how it works. Noticed though that your kernel is quite "big", and could be stripped rather much. Don't know how much it will affect speed and memory usage, but it will at least reduce compile time :-)

Anyways, writing this, the compile just finished. Altough... it won't start. xenconsole: Could not read tty from store: No such file or directory. I killed and restarted xenconsoled. And now something else is crashing...

# xm crate -c crab-domU.cfg name=test1
Using config file "crab-domU.cfg".
Started domain test1

xm list only returns Domain-0 :-(

Will try a "normal" 2.6.16-rc1 kernel compile now.

Best regards
