    I have some questions about Xen On Gutsy From Repositories How-To

    I'm running gutsy amd64. If i wanted to install my VM's should i just add, in the xen-tools.conf, the line: arch=amd64??
    And in the xen-create-image command should i just change arch option from --arch=i386 to --arch=amd64

    In the xen-create-image command what you mean about specifying --ide option? Gutsy detected my harddrive as sda. In that option should i use hda1 for first VM, hda2 for second VM or whatever i want for each VM (like it says on man page)? Or what should go there.

    thanks for help.

    You can do this, but it's not necessary if you have specified the architecture in xen-tools.conf already.

    This has nothing to do with your real hard disks. Simply use --ide, as shown in the tutorial.

    vm boot hangs

    Setting up a debian vm on gutsy (kubuntu) is a mess, at least for me. First of all, during image creation, I get a warning about lib/tls (libc6-xen is installed).
    Fun starts, however, when I try to create my vm. I found in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen-3.1/+bug/144631 and in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=605192 that I am "not the only one" and how to fix the bugs. It helped a lot, but now I'm stuck. My vm hangs right after the crond init with
    INIT: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
    I know there is another thread about this issue and missing tty's, but this is not the case for me.
    Any ideas?
