Default panic: xc_dom_boot.c:79

Hi all,

I've setup XEN according this howto :


When i boot the Xen hypervisor, at boot time, the following error occurs :

root@ziomario:/home/mario# xm create /etc/xen/xen1.example.com.cfg
Using config file "/etc/xen/xen1.example.com.cfg".
Error: (1, 'Internal error', 'panic: xc_dom_boot.c:79: launch_vm: SETVCPUCONTEXT failed (rc=-1)')

this is my system :

root@ziomario:/home/mario# uname -a
Linux ziomario 3.0.0-16-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 27 17:44:39 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

On Google, i found out that sometimes it happens,but i can't find any solution. Does anyone know what is causing this and is there a solution it ?

The Ubuntu kernel has no Xen support. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xen :

"It's true that Intrepid does not include a dom0 linux kernel, but it does still include a Xen 3.3 hypervisor and userland tools."
This is true also for all Ubuntu version that cam after Intrepid.
