Default Howto xen_gui_fedora_7_desktop

RE: the following Howto for FC7.
"http://www.howtoforge.com/xen_gui_fedora_7_desktop"

My problem is with the file entered on the second window from the top displayed on the following page

"http://www.howtoforge.com/xen_gui_fedora_7_desktop_p2"
Should the file be created first as a file, with dd as an image? or does this do it automatically?
The person who created the HOWTO selected a file /home/xen/Fedora-7 without saying HOW he created the file/image.

Whatever I choose as a file or create with dd just gives me an error message with a bunch of python garbage. It is attached below as appendix.

Surely someone here must have used it and must know?

And yes...XEN runs as I used the xen enabled kernel with FC7.
FC7 is out of the box newly installed, but I dont remotely get what the howto describes.

thanks

I think the file is created automatically, however the directory holding that file (in this example /home/xen) must already exist. You can create it like this:
Code:
mkdir /home/xen

Yes I did all the directory and file creation but to no avail. I also for good measure chmod 777 the /home/xen directory. It still doesnt work. I get a "file doesnt exist" error. I came to the conclusion that my xen configuration tool is broken. I however do use the latest FC7 spin and the Xen enabled kernel is running.

It is a clean installation, so I honestly dont know why it doesnt work. I now tried it on two different rack-servers one with Opterons the other with Xeons with clean FC7 installations. Result remains the same.

I am really amazed thatr you could get yours to run on FC7.

Do you know which of XEN and KQEMU is the fastest?

That wasn't me, but Oliver. You could try to send him a PM.
