I built xen  3.0-unstable with VT-x support on  SLES 10.1. The machine
boots ok and I start  xend manually. I encounter  the following
problem is with guest creation:
$xm create -c /etc/xen/vm/SLES9x32_16G

Using config file "/etc/xen/vm/SLES9x32_16G".
Started domain SLES9x32_16G
xenconsole: Could not read tty from store: No such file or directory

The guest is created but remains blocked.

Using xm console <ID> does not resolve the problem.

I saw previous postings describing the same error. In one instance the was due
to absence  of root filesystem for guest,  which appears to be  not the case
here  (details below). In  another  instance the  consoled was not running.
I checked consoled using ps -ef and found it running with '?' in the tty field.

Below is infomation about  the changeset, guest configuration, and xen
grub configuration. Please  let me know if more  information is needed to
determine the problem. It's most likely I'm missing something in the setup.
