I am using Xen-3.4.3 compiled from source on CentOS 5.5. When I try to create a domU using the virt-install command, I get the following message and the process stops: (btw, I am using drbd for the disk)

]# virt-install --prompt
Would you like a fully virtualized guest (yes or no)? This will allow you to run unmodified operating systems. yes
What is the name of your virtual machine? vm0
How much RAM should be allocated (in megabytes)? 1000
What would you like to use as the disk (file path)? /dev/drbd2
What is the install CD-ROM/ISO or URL? http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/5.5/os/x86_64/   
Starting install...
Retrieving file .treeinfo...                                                                                       |  417 B     00:00    
Retrieving file boot.iso...                                                                                        |  10 MB     00:01    
Creating domain...                                                                                                 |    0 B     00:01    
Domain installation still in progress. You can reconnect to
the console to complete the installation process.

When I try to connect to the domU using "virt-viewer vm0", I get a seg fault. Doing  "vnc-viewer vm0" gives me an error saying "main:        unable to resolve host by name: No such file or directory (2)".

Can anyone help me get around this problem so that I can continue with the domU install?

Thanks a lot
