I've had a heck of a time getting Fedora 16 to run as a guest VM under
CentOS 5.7 host as a paravirtualized Xen guest. I believe the issue has
something to do with Fedora 16 using grub2...
When I attempt to start the VM (via xm create), I get this error:
Using config file "/etc/xen/fedora-workstation".
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 686, in ?
fs = fsimage.open(file, get_fs_offset(file))
IOError: [Errno 95] Operation not supported
No handlers could be found for logger "xend"
Error: Boot loader didn't return any data!
In my kickstart, I had to create a partition for F16 as:
part biosboot --fstype=biosboot --size=1
I didn't readily find the error when googling...
Has anyone been able to run F16 as a PV guest? And if so, what did you do
to make it happen?????
