Lightbulb can't reboot xen in slackware 12 after compiling glibc


#This is my menu.lst:

title Xen
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/xen-3.0-unstable.gz dom0_mem=262144
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16.29-xen root=/dev/hda11
module /boot/xen.gz


#and I have copied xen.gz and xen-3.0-unstable.gz to /hda2/boot



#This message I got at reboot (xenproblem or slackware 12-problem?)

***************************************************************
** WARNING: Currently emulating unsupported memory accesses **

#Followed sugggestions below from the link

#edit glibc.Slackbuild

# old
# CFLAGS="-g $OPTIMIZ" \
# new
CFLAGS="-g $OPTIMIZ -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs" \

#compiled glibc
./glibc.SlackBuild
installpkg glibc-2.5-i486-4.tgz
reboot

#Still same message:

#Then I did like this:

mkinitrd ? 2.6.16.29-xen -m jbd:ext3 -s /boot/xen-tree -o /boot/xen.gz

#...got this message

NO /sbin/init found on rootdev
kernel panic

#Any suggestions would be deeply apprecitated!

Does the directory /boot/xen-tree exist? Your initrd is apparently faulty.
If you recompile glibc then you'll probably need to re-compile your whole system in order for the binaries to run.

thank you for your reply
maybe I should compile glibc back then just by installing the original pkgtool packet glibc-2.5-i486-4.tgz?
Yes the tree does exist.
I have solved part of the problem.

mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.16.29-xen -m jbd:ext3:ide-cd:ide-disk:ide-generic:libata:jfs -o /boot/xend.gz -s
/boot/xend-tree

Still get the same message, but it loads zen after a pause in 5 countdown seconds.
