I’ve installed OpenSUSE 11.2 x64 on my Intel Core 2 Quad machine with 8GB of RAM. Installation went perfect. After the main installation, I’ve installed the XEN-kernel. Booting into the XEN-kernel goes fine.
But, now I want to install the first domU (paravirtualized). I use the same installation disk but OpenSUSE 11.2 won’t install. It crashes directly. Neither the x64 or the x86 version works.
The strange thing is that I can install OpenSUSE 11.2 as “full virtualized”.
Also, OpenSUSE 11.1 (paravirtualized!) as a domU works perfect!!
I’ve also tried to install a new 11.2 domU without success. The x86 and x86_64 had the same issue. Also no matter if you use DVD (which I used for installation), SuSE Repo, or local HTTP. Also no differenc between YaST and vm-install. I don’t have an HVM posibilty, I only like to install paravirtualized.
Afterpressing ENTER, I can’t read the last messages, the console closes and some more error messages appear. But I think they are not valid, because the kernel has been found. (screenshot2.png) http://www.dsb-gmbh.net/screenshot2.png
I still cannot get one Suse-11.2 DomU running on a Suse11.1/2-Xen-Host-
vm-install -n suse11.2 -c 4 --nic=mac=00:aa:bb:bb:yx:xx -d file:/data/xen/Ftpe01Root -M 1024 --graphics none -s ftp://<servername>/pub/suse/i386/11.2
(this is the local DVD-Image, but it doesn’t make any difference if I try http://download.opensuse …)
Same thing works fine with the 11.1-image (on 11.1 and 11.2-Host)
So the DVD/Online-Repo of 11.2 seems to causes the problem?!
Can anyone please give me a hint?

Well, I just tried a network installation (local ftp server) and I received the same error but this time during the installation process (I think it was at the first reboot), so I’m on the same place as before… :’(
I’m running into the same issues on my testing server I just installed with openSUSE 11.2 x86-64 with latest patches from yesterday (13.02.2010). But what I noticed is, that if I cange from “No Graphics Support” to “Paravirtualized Graphics Adapter” in vm-install dialog, the linuxrc loads successfully and the installation starts.
Would be nice to see if others could also workaround by
