i just installed xen from source (using mke world then make install) booted into linux using the xen-2.0.7.gz kernel and then triewd to run ttylinux  from the instructions in the user manual.
i used this command.

xm create /store/xmexample1 -c

my xonfigfile ( xmexample1) is this.
#  -*- mode: python; -*-
# Python configuration setup for 'xm create'.
# This script sets the parameters used when a domain is created using 'xm create'.
# You use a separate script for each domain you want to create, or
# you can set the parameters for the domain on the xm command line.

# Kernel image file.
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz- 2.6.11-xenU"

# Optional ramdisk.
#ramdisk = "/boot/initrd.gz"

# The domain build function. Default is 'linux'.

# Initial memory allocation (in megabytes) for the new domain.
memory = 10

# A name for your domain. All domains must have different names.
name = "ttylinux"

# Which CPU to start domain on?
#cpu = -1   # leave to Xen to pick

# Define network interfaces.

# Number of network interfaces. Default is 1.

# Optionally define mac and/or bridge for the network interfaces.
# Random MACs are assigned if not given.
#vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:00:00:00:11, bridge=xen-br0' ]

# Define the disk devices you want the domain to have access to, and
# what you want them accessible as.
# Each disk entry is of the form phy:UNAME,DEV,MODE
# where UNAME is the device, DEV is the device name the domain will see,
# and MODE is r for read-only, w for read-write.

disk = [ 'file:/home/m/Desktop/ttylinux-4.9_2.tar.gz_FILES/ttylinux-4.9/rootfs.gz,sda1,rw' ]
#disk = [ 'phy:s1-lvol0,swap,w' ]
# Set the kernel command line for the new domain.
# You only need to define the IP parameters and hostname if the domain's
# IP config doesn't, e.g. in ifcfg-eth0 or via DHCP.
# You can use 'extra' to set the runlevel and custom environment
# variables used by custom rc scripts (e.g. VMID=, usr= ).

# Set if you want dhcp to allocate the IP address.
# Set netmask.
# Set default gateway.
# Set the hostname.
#hostname= "vm%d" % vmid
ip = ""

# Set root device.
rootpath = "/dev/sda1 ro"

# Root device for nfs.
#root = "/dev/nfs"
# The nfs server.
#nfs_server = '
# Root directory on the nfs server.
#nfs_root   = '/full/path/to/root/directory'

# Sets runlevel 4.
extra = "4"

# Set according to whether you want the domain restarted when it exits.
# The default is 'onreboot', which restarts the domain when it shuts down
# with exit code reboot.
# Other values are 'always', and 'never'.

restart = 'never'


now upon running the  command i get this output and then it stops. nothing happens after this.
please tell what i am doing wrong. i am a noob at this so please help.
