Yes. You did use 'iommu=soft' on your bootup line right?

I thought I did; turns out I was wrong. Sorry for the noise.

Now I tried with "iommu=soft swiotlb=force", but this way the guest immediately disappears; it doesn't even start to produce console output.

# xm create -c f15-64bit-pv
Using config file "/etc/xen/f15-64bit-pv".
Using <class 'grub.GrubConf.GrubConfigFile'> to parse /grub/menu.lst

http://wiki.xen.org/xenwiki/XenPCIpassthrough says though:


    # Starting the DomU using pvgrub with 'iommu=soft swiotlb=force'
    breaks pvgrub.

Perhaps that could be the reason. Removing "swiotlb=force" and keeping only "iommu=soft" crashes (?) the same way.
