FC4 and Xen xwindows not working


Hi I have just installed FC4 on my machine and after some effort have managed to get Xen to boot but cannot get Xwindows to start. it keeps coming up with a message saying /dev/agpgart cannot be found. When I boot normally it is there but under Xen it is not.
Has anyone come accross this problem.

Regards
Andrew

As long as your system is not horribly broken, it should be trivial to get /dev/agpgart. Run these two commands (as root):

mknod /dev/agpgart c 10 175;
insmod agpgart

I did finally get Xwindows going by doing a make ARCH=xen xconfig and loading the correct drivers and then rebuilding the kernel. I can now boot into xen but the xend won't start.
these messages come up when attempting to start:

.Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 36, in ?
from xen.xend.server import SrvDaemon
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/server/SrvDaemon.py", line 41, in ?
import channel
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/server/channel.py", line 3, in ?
import xen.lowlevel.xc; xc = xen.lowlevel.xc.new()
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/lowlevel/xc.so: undefined symbol: xcio_error

Have I forgotten something.

It looks like whoever built these packages from source code made some huge mistake. You may need to use a different Linux distribution.
