i´m trying to run fc6 as guest os on a fc4 dom0. at first i installed fc4 as
domU and then updated it to fc6. now i get the following error when i
$ xm create <config-file>
this is the error:
Error: Error creating domain: (22, 'Invalid argument')

here my configuration file for the fc6 domU:
name = "Mailserver"
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6xen"
memory = 512
vif = [' ']
disk =
root = "/dev/sda1"
extra = "ro selinux=0 3"

i copied the kernel image and the modules to the appropriate locations on
the host system. this didn´t work too.
then i tried to use the old kernel image: kernel =
the domU started, but udev complained that the version of the kernel is too

here the log messages:
