    After successfull install of Xen and creating vm01 I get this error when starting virtual machine vm01:

    xm create -c /etc/xen/vm01-config.sxp

    INIT: Entering runlevel: 3
    Starting system log daemon: syslogd.
    Starting kernel log daemon: klogd.
    Starting MTA: exim4.
    Starting internet superserver: inetd.
    Starting deferred execution scheduler: atd.
    Starting periodic command scheduler: cron.
    INIT: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: Id "2" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: Id "3" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: Id "4" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: Id "5" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: Id "6" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel

    Any suggestions would be very helpfull.

    I also tried changing line in /etc/inittab from:

    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1

    to:

    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console

    and commenting down the rest of tty2 - tty6.

    Error still repeating.

    Thank you for any solution to this problem.

    Do you have enough free memory to run this virtual machine?

    Thank you both for your answers.
    I already tried Zeeclor solution. No go.
    Also when I look in /proc/meminfo ther is only 64 MB.
    Main xen server domain only takes 64MB of 1GB available on the server. This is probably normal Falko? For vm01 I alocated 512 MB and no change.

    Here is my conf file for vm01:

    name="vm01"
    kernel="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12.6-xenU"
    root="/dev/hda1"
    memory=512
    disk=['file:/vserver/images/vm01.img,hda1,w','file:/vserver/images/vm01-swap.img,hda2,w']
    # network
    vif=['ip=10.0.0.1']
    dhcp="off"
    ip="10.0.0.1"
    netmask="255.0.0.0"
    gateway="10.0.0.254"
    hostname="vm01.xxxxx.xxx"
    extra="3"


    ~# xm list
    Name ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State Time(s)
    Domain-0 0 64 1 r----- 236.9

    ERROR STAYS??!!?! :(

    What happens if you assign less memory (e.g. 64MB or 128MB) to vm01 in the configuration file?

    Still the same problem with 64 MB, 128 MB or 512 MB.

    What's in /etc/inittab?

    Can you try

    Code:
    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console
    instead of

    Code:
    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
    2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
    3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
    4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
    5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
    6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6
    in /etc/inittab?

    I discovered that virtual machine did not create tty1-6 in /dev so I make them with:

    Code:
    ./MAKEDEV tty1 tty2 tty3 tty4 tty5 tty6

    Thank you Falko you gave me a hint. :) Your HOWTO-s are big contribution to OpenSource community so keep up the good work.

    some fixes I use

    At ubuntu I just add
    this line to /etc/inittab

    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console

    For debian I needed to install udev
    apt-get install udev

    maybe this helps?
