Default Xen on Ubuntu

I'm trying to setup Xen on a Ubuntu 8.04 laptop. I followed the instructions in

Installing Xen On An Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) Server

http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu-8.0...u-repositories

I haven't gotten as far as adding a guest, I'm stuck on the reboot with the Xen kernel.

When I boot, Xen seems to be going OK, and tells me its giving up the VGA. A little time goes on and then the VGA screen clears, after which there is no response to the keyboard or anything more on the screen.

The laptop does in fact answer pings, and in fact accepts ssh connections. However, the ssh connections just hang with no response.

I get the same behavior if I substitute "console=vga" for "console=ttyx" on the grub kernel params. The laptop has no serial port.

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 currently patched to kernel 2.6.24-20. I did not take the suggestion of using the 2.6.24-16 workaround xen kernel. I thought the network problem it adressed may have been fixed by -20, and at any rate it would not effect the console problem.

Any suggestions?

I haven't used Xen on an Ubuntu desktop yet, only on a server. Maybe the Ubuntu Xen kernel is a server kernel and does not support many graphics cards.

That happenes some times? All you have to do use the Alt F2 or Fx key(s) to use ttyx. TTY1 gets busy with some thing and I have Not figured it out yet?
(none of control C, Z, D work either.


Now can some body please tell me how I go about using XEN in 8.10?

I setup a xen guest on my server64 but I cannot access it via xm command because I get a lot of errors.
I manually downloaded xen.3.3.gz and ran install.sh , it too gave me errors saying I have to run make inst 1st.
So I did but then again I got an error line 51 of script was referring to a place or file which do not exist??1


Any way I tried to load xen manually in my menu.lst but the server freezes and will Not boot!?

Can some body let the rest of us with this problem know what to do?

Thanks.
PS I know there is no support for xen in 8.10 but people found work-arounds.

I am installing the updates etc, right now but from the looks of it , seems like you left no stones unturned.
I mean the menu.lst and the /boot or grub/ directories and files are enough to eat your lunch!
very good instructions indeed!
Thanks!

PS, One thing is not worth for me to waste time on is the kind of half-hearted (or any other body parts of your choice ) instructions.
I am new to this so when I got my first error about /etc/xen-config file item "dist = Hardy", it took me a while to figure out how to make a link to gutsy.d (under /usr/lib/xen-tools/ ) and call it intrepid to make it work (I was thinking to change my lsb_release value but not a good idea) .... heh well It made the domU but xm returns a lot of errors and that is what I am working on now.
Thanks again!
