Hi Folks,

I just tried to upgrade my X86 Xen system from Xen 3.0.4 + Dom0=kernel to Xen 3.1.0 + Dom0=kernel 2.6.18.

I have to build the kernel from source.  I use initrd, and have my root directory under LVM.

The system is Gentoo, running on an Core2-duo HP box.

I installed xen 3.1.0 from the tarball, and followed the instructions from the README file.  The only place I deviated from them was when I created the initrd, for which I used "lvm2create -M gentoo".  (This is exactly the procedure I have used in the past and it worked before.)

But when I try to boot my new Xen+Dom0, I get a kernel panic message:

    Kernel panic  - not syncing:  No init found.  Try passing init=option to the kernel.

Any suggestions what I might have done wrong?
