  • Thread-topic: 'Interrupted system call' booting domains

Hi all
I am a recent (as of this weekend) convert to Xen and I have to say I am very, very impressed!
I am now planning a project to create a default Xen domain-0 installation CD based on Debian, providing an easy to use system for creating
additional domains at install time.
But first I need to iron out some issues with my personal Xen installation.
When I create the domains (xm create -f /etc/xen/auto/dom1 etc) I sometimes get the error 'Interrupted system call'. Interrogating the xend-debug.log file yeilds the following which is the only discernable error:
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Device or resource error
This would say to me that I am using all 8 loop devices. I upped the max_loop parameter on boot to 255, but it hasnt fixed the issue.
As I said before I only get this error sometimes. If i repeat the xm create command, it usually starts the domain the second time. The problem with this is that I cant rely on the domains to get automatically restarted after reboot.
Here is the complete output from xend-debug.log if that helps.

    output = out.readline()

Hopefully I am doing something dumb somewhere and there is a quick fix so I can get on to setting up my project page :)
Thanks in advance
