  1. [9fans] Xen 3.1 Invalid kernel during installation

    Hi there,

    I am running out of ideas how to install Plan9 in Fedora8 latest XEN.

    Followed instructions from wiki.

    Ended up having following plan9inst:
    kernel = "/var/local/xenboxes/plan9/9xeninst.gz"
    memory = 128
    name = "plan9"
    vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:10:00:00:10' ]
    disk = [ 'file:/var/local/xenboxes/plan9/plan9.img,sda,w',
    'file:/var/local/isos/plan9.iso,sdb,r' ]
    on_poweroff = 'destroy'
    on_reboot = 'destroy'
    on_crash = 'destroy'


    # This is the equivalent of plan9.ini:
    extra="""
    nobootprompt=local!/boot/bzroot
    bootfile=sd01!cdboot!bootdisk.img
    """

    However once I execute:
    xm create -c plan9inst

    I get following error message:
    Using config file "./plan9inst".
    Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'xc_dom_compat_check: guest type
    xen-3.0-x86_32 not supported by xen kernel, sorry\n')

    I got 9xeninst.gz from http://plan9.bell-labs.com/sources/xen/xen3/
    iso downloaded from http://cm.bell-labs.com/plan9/download/plan9.iso.bz2

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Probable cause is that your Xen is configured with PAE enabled,
    which means it won't boot non-PAE kernels. Plan 9 Xen kernel
    currently doesn't support PAE. Look for "xen3 and pae problems"
    in comp.os.plan9 for discussion on this topic.
