Thread-topic: Running Xen 3.0, guest OS does not open a window

Dear Xen community,

I have Xen 3.0 installed on RedHat Linux Enterprise RHEL4U2.   “xend install” runs fine with no error messages.


However, when I start “xm cr guest-vmx.conf” I do not get any new window open for the new guest OS.  “xm list” shows that the vmx has started and seems to be working fine (just for testing, when I type “xterm” an X window opens OK).


Any idea how to get a window open for the guest OS?



“xm list” produces the following output:


Name             Id        Mem(MB)       CPU        VCPU(s)        State                Time(s)

Domain-0         0         507                 0               1                r-----                   87.3

VMX-1             1         132                 1               1                 r-----                  671.1



My guest-vmx.conf file:

# Kernel image file.

kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/vmxloader"


# The domain build function. VMX domain uses 'vmx'.



# Initial memory allocation (in megabytes) for the new domain.

memory = 128


name = "VMX-1"


#cdrom = "/root/FC4-i386-DVD.iso"



disk = [ 'file:/root/rhel4u1_ia32_qcow.img,ioemu:hda,w' ]


#device_model = '/usr/lib/xen/bin/qemu-dm.debug'

device_model = '/usr/lib/xen/bin/qemu-dm'


memmap = '/usr/lib/xen/boot/mem-map.sxp'
