Thread-topic: [PATCH] Patch to make latest hg multi-domain back to work
Attached is the config file of mine, which is used to boot second
domain. Due to DNS problem on my target machine, I have to build xen0 +
xenU differently with CONFIG_VT on/off individually.

After copying all necessary image files to the target, I normally do:

#lomount -t ext2 -diskimage /root/xenia64.img -partition
2 /mnt
(Here xenia64.img is a file system used for second domain. After this
command, /dev/loop0 will be used in attached config file)

#rm -rf /var/lib/xenstore/*
(I need this step, just to ensure environment exactly same for each

#xend start

#xm create

When second domain is up, you can use:
#xm console dom_id
To get the login shell.

BTW, I have no vnif configured in.
