Thread: Install other Linux Distro's in DomU under Xen?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Install other Linux Distro's in DomU under Xen?

    I've setup a server running OpenSUSE 11.4 64bit and configured as a Xen server.

    I was easily able to install another OpenSUSE 11.4 installation in a DomU and also a Windows DomU. However, I have major issues trying to install CentOS 5.6 in a DomU.
    For example, if I install right from the DVD, I get a kernel panic using HVM and a "can't find disk, choose disk driver" error using PVM.

    Please help! Some of our server applications require a RHEL5 host distro which is why I'm running CentOS 5.6 for those services.

    Hi,

    I am not an expert, but you should not say a DomU for each distrib you install. On a Xen system, you can only have one DomU. The distros you install are in Dom0 domain.

    For the DVD of the CentOS, did you check the integrity of your media ?
