RE: [Xen-users] centos jailtime image -- no network

I found that the jailtime images work fine with the XenSource kernel.  While trying to get them working on FC6 I downloaded XS 3.0.3 and 3.0.4 and then worked well by booting the DomU to that kernel (and copying the libs to the DomU as well).  Some things didn’t cooperate though (tap:aio, xvdN) but the network did).


Please note that I did not use XS for the Dom0 though.

The jailtime image might expect to be booted with something other than
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5xenU"

grep netfront: /var/log/message*
in the guest to see if the xennet driver loaded...

This returned no output.
