[Xen-devel] netbsd problems


I've been trying to get a netbsd domain up and running to play with
under xen2, but i've been having some issues.

If i try and use the install kernel supplied on the xen website,
it locks up after the line:

    init: copying out path `/sbin/init' 11

during the boot sequence. If i boot with no vif enabled, it doesn't
even get that far, stopping after detecting the block device i've
provided, but before finding the ramdisk embedded into the kernel

If instead i try and boot off one of the fs images to be found on
the netbsd iso, and my own kernel netbsd complains that it can't
find a filesystem type it knows about (this with everything under
the sun built in).

Now, if i create an ext2 filesystem on my block device, and extract
out the base and etc sets to it, then i can boot into a netbsd
domain perfectly, but i really do want to use the installer,
instead of having to do everything manually.

As an extra point, is ffs a better filesystem than ext2? And if so,
better enough to put up with not being able to read from my dom0?

Hoping these are all simple issues,
