Is it because of RAM ? pls help:::Guest Install Error


Hi all
I have got a fully virtualized system with FC6 along with XEN 3.0.3, now i am trying to install guest OS on top of XEN but when i start the install of guest OS(win xp or SeSU Linux) through virtual machine manager, it gives out Guest Install Error i.e. Error: VirDomainCreateLinux()failed
I really dont know about the reason but i read it somewhere that it could be a problem due to RAM.

You don't say how much RAM you have. My experience of Virtual Machines is that it uses about half the available RAM. So if I have Kubuntu and 512Mb as my main installation and install VM Fedora 6 it uses about 256Mb RAM. If I then tried to install SUSE on top of Fedora I would not have enough RAM to run SUSE.

cat /proc/meminfo should do it

alternatively BIOS and POST should show you when booting up.

I guess its a lot, do you think it could be the reason of giving me that error.
thanks

Possibly. But don't need to nest one virtual machine inside the other. I use Kubuntu as my main distro but I had one VMware Player and several Virtal Machines e.g. Fedora, Knoppix, PCLinuxOS etc. to choose from.

Thanks for the command, it says total memory is 449400KB and Free memory is only 7948KB.
So i guess this was the problem. i will first increase the RAM and then lets see if it works.
If anybody thinks that there could be some other problem aswell then do let me know .
Thanks
