I'm trying to install FreeBSD 6.0 from cdrom to a fully virtualized machine.
I've already run domU using xen patched kernels without a problem, but
can't create a fully virtualized domU.

I am running :

 - AMD dual opteron with SVM Code option enabled (BIOS)
 - xen 3.0.4 compiled from sources

When issuing :

# xm create xm_fbsd.hvm
Using config file "./xm_fbsd.hvm".
Started domain FreeBSD60_01

It starts (apparently) my fbsd domU:

# xm list
Name                      ID   Mem VCPUs      State   Time(s)
Domain-0                   0   125     4     r-----    168.5
FreeBSD60_01              18   256     1     ------      0.0

nothing happens, nothing really starts. It will do the same, if I remove
all entries abount disks ... I don't know where to look for errors, for
xend.log doesn't really tell me anything interesting.

I have tried both sdl=1 and vnc=1, but no console access.

Long output from xm list:
