Can anyone advise on the following problem…
openSUSE 11 (126.96.36.199-1.1-xen) on 4Gb Dell D830 (Intel Core2 Duo CPU T9300 64 Bit) using traditional networking (ifconfig) and hard IP address (not DHCP).
I can run ‘Create Virtual Machines’ from YaST and set it all up, but the following things happen:
(1) If I install SLED or SLES 10SP2 (just do a default install: next, next, next…) then it will go through all the install screens and copy all the files but when it gets to the first reboot will display “Error - No kernel was found. The installation may have failed.”
(2) If I try to start Virtual Machine Manager from YaST it flashes briefly on the screen and vanishes. If I start virt-manager from a shell (as root, obviously) it appears but as soon as I click on the host (which says “Disconnected”) it will then close virt-manager. Therefore I cannot open the VM I installed in the previous step.
I am successfully running Xen on SLES10 on other hardware.
I have successfully run Xen on SLED10SP1 on this hardware. (It was running SLED & Xen OK then I rebuilt it with openSUSE 11 & Xen which is not OK).
I have tried different installation sources so my source media is not corrupt.
The kernel is installed because, if it wasn’t, I wouldn’t be able to do step (1).
I have removed and re-added the Xen components via YaST.
Can anyone offer any thoughts as to where I go from here?
