xenstored is still running.
I rebooted, ktraced xenstored, and then tried to create the centos
domain, which reliably breaks xen every time:
~1mb (~12mb uncompressed)
xenstore-ls current works though with no errors...
I tried to create the FreeBSD7 domain, and it failed with:
[XEN] Initialising virtual ethernet driver.
panic: not implemented
That looks like a problem with the FreeBSD kernel, but as a result,
xenstore-ls now gives this error at the end:
vbd = ""
1 = ""
2 = ""
769 = ""
domain = "freebsd_xen_INSTALL"
frontend = "/local/domain/2/device/vbd/769"
uuid = "807bc57d-ff85-27b7-a7fc-1dd311d02d73"
dev = "hda1"
state = "5"
params = "/xen/nfs_root/freebsd1/mdroot-7.0"
mode = "w"
online = ""
xenstore-ls: xs_directory (/local/domain/0/backend/vbd/2/769/online): Bad file descriptor
Running xenstore for a second time now makes it hang.
