Thread-topic: Install of a Paravirtualized Domain
Hi all,
I am using a Solaris dom0. I use virt-manager or virt-install to add
domains to my Xen system. (Should be the Xen 3.xx release). I have been
able to setup dom0 and a number of fully virtualized domU's; however, I
am having trouble installing a paravirtualized domain. I have tried
installing fedora and centOS through paravirtualized means, but the
install has gotten stuck each time. For my install media URL I have
tried to use several mirrors (for example:
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/mirror.centos.org/5.1/os/i386) and I
have used no kickstart file. Part of the way through the install I will
get a message informing me that it was unable to retrieve stage2.img
(from the images directory). I initially thought this was a mirror
related issue and tried installing the OS from a tree located on a web
server on my local network. The same problem occurred and I noticed that
an extra slash was showing up between the root domain name and the tree

I have seen this issue as I browsed through various mailing lists and
user groups but haven't yet seen a working solution. Is this a bug in
Xen and if so what is the best work around?

Thanks in advance for the help.
