Cloned system refuses to use XEN as its kernel


I have a SLES 10.3 system. I’ve configured it the way I wanted it, and configured virtualization in YAST.

I’ve rebooted and selected XEN as my kernel, which is what I want.

I’ve then run a

% yast clone_system

which has happily created my /root/autoinst.xml file

I’ve verified that the XEN stuff is in there. For some reason, a rebuild of the same system with that autoinst.xml yields all of the xen PACKAGES installed, but the XEN kernel is not configured in grub.

Is there a way to force XEN to behave, and to truly make the system cloned?
