ok the jailtime.org image is sparse. for my information, how to create
sparse images anyway (possibly without xen-create-image) ?
I just did a fresh gentoo and the filesystem behaves nicely (simple dd
if=/dev/zero of=gentoo.ext3 bs=1024k count=2000). So I'll recheck the
SLES9sp3 issue at work.
something else, when I used to reboot a linux domU, the guest was kept
alive, rebooting itself. Now (since 3.1?) I need to xm create it again.
any hint/idea ?
