Hi List,

when I try to boot the xen kernel from xen.org, I get after boot:

unknown device mapper/sys_vol-sys_root or invalid block hd0,0

On my system there is one /boot partition as ext3 and / on LVM /dev/mapper/sys_vol-sys_root

My menu.lst regarding this is:

title           Xen 3.2 / Ubuntu 8.04, kernel
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /xen.gz
module /vmlinuz- console=tty0 root=/dev/mapper/sys_vol-sys_root ro
module          /initrd.img-

I also compiled in LVM support using

make linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig
change DM driver" from "M" to "*".
make linux-2.6-xen-build
make linux-2.6-xen-install

Can anyone help?
