I have build an appliance sing the susestudio tool. It seem to work in their test environment, however, it will not run on my dom0 machine. The test machine is over 3 years old, so I am worndering if there are any incompatibilities.
xm info on the dom0 returns this:
release                :

cc_compile_by          : abuild
cc_compile_domain      : suse.de

The .xenconfig file generated by the susestudio is as follows:
#  -*- mode: python; -*-
disk=[ "tap:aio:vmunison.x86_64-0.0.1.raw,xvda,w" ]
vif=[ "bridge=xenbr0" ]
I edit the file to use absolute paths and attempt to start it up. I get this:
Error: No kernel specified
So now I play around, add the "bootloader = '/usr/bin/pygrub'" line. It returns the message "Error: too many values to unpack".
My existing vms use the "bootloader = '/usr/lib/xen/boot/domUloader.py'" line, so I tried that, still the same problem.
If I change the "tap:aio" to "file", then I get the boot loader to display one page of text and then it crashes.
Is there any hope in getting it runnig on the existing dom0?
