Code:
label XEN
        kernel mboot.c32
        append xen-4.2.0.gz iommu=1 --- vmlinuz-3.6.2-1.el6xen.x86_64 root=live:UUID=7402-1F02 rootfstype=vfat rw liveimg overlay=UUID=7402-1F02 3 quiet nodiskmount novolumemount rhgb vga=791 rd.luks=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0 --- initramfs-3.6.2-1.el6xen.x86_64.img

there is the relevant .cfg entry. For root I copied the default from the other entry.

Since this is a live-usb a persistent storage chunk is created in the space not needed. This allows packages to be added etc.

I am using xen-4.2.0.gz to be exact, but any version should work.

I am not editing my initramfs file. I just included the one I use as well as my kernel into the syslinux folder.

Thanks! That's very helpful and I will try that. I still need to fix the update-grub issue but as I said the Linux Mint forum has some pointers.

Is there any difference between xl and xm (xend)? Ease of use, performance, compatibility? Just a question if you noticed something.

xend is being phased out and xl is now the default as of 4.2.0. The main reason I like xl is because you no longer need to use virsh (libvirt) to hot swap pci devices. Xend is not even needed anymore, but is still enabled by default so xm can still be used.

Sorry I hate GRUB 2... I avoid it if I can

Helly everyone,

I've got a Fedora 16 build working but as soon as I add any pci device and try to start the machine i get the "pci: PCI Backend and pci-stub don't own device xx:xx.x" error i've used the guide on the first post without a hitch but i cant pass anything. My mobo and cpu have vt-d enabled installed (I'm a ex-debian user) can someone point me in the right direction?

it's possible it's an selinux issue. I would post how to disable it but a google search provides everything in the first couple hits. I would try that first

I had selinux set to "permissive" as per the guide I've also set it to "disabled" but no help. Everything works as advertised but i cannot add any pci divices because I get the "pciBack doen't own this device" error....I'm sure it has to be something simple but i've been reading other posts and everyong has something different I used this guide because i almost have identical hardware yet pci passthrough still not working jealoussmiley.gif

There is another problem I encounter while following the guide again there is a lot of great information here but after reading 40+ pages of replies I did not find a solution so here it goes. While trying to start virt-manager remotely following the instructions of the OP i get the following error while using google i discovered that this is a very common error which leads me to the question how come no one here has address it yet?

has anyone run into this issue before?
post #419 of 813
Flash0151, it appears you're trying to run virt-manager in PuTTY. PuTTY is text-based and cannot write objects on-screen which is why you're getting that error. You either need to use VNC/tunnel X to see a GUI or use xm/xl.
