Xen on Zen


Hi All,

I'm running zenwalk 5.2, and tired to install xen-3.1 but no luck.
I tried installing the binary pkg and building from the source. However, I always end up getting a message while booting into Xen kernel.

The message is : "No /sbin/init found", and just above this message I get an error which says failed to mount my root partition, and I'm given a shell. fdisk -l on this shell does'nt show my disk.

So I tried creating initrd file with scsi drivers and ext3, but still I end up with the same error message. Any suggestions.

Thanks.

did you update lilo to reflect the kernel change? since you created a new initrd. (also when you ran mkinitrd did you point it to the newly compiled kernel).?
