To the experts,

Sorry but I'm replying anyway :P

I can't be sure what I am doing to get the problem to occur, but it seems
to be network related.  Looking around Google, I found one thread in
port-xen with a similar description but it dead ended with no resolution.
(see  I
thought that since I was still using Xen 2, I should look at this as an
opportunity to upgrade to Xen 3. It was a further learning experience but
I did manage to get Domain0 up and running and also got my user domain
created and booting.  But, before it finished its rc script, it died:

I'm running a CURRENT dom0 kernel on 5.0 userland with xen33. I had issues with earlier versions of Xen. I keep moving forward with Xen3 and it seems to keep me ahead of the main problems, with the exception of an off by 1 issue here and there ;)

So I took a cue from you and upgraded my domain0 to NetBSD 5.0 so I could move to Xen 3.3. Now xdm doesn't work. Sheesh. I also tried to boot up with the Xen 3.3 kernel. The XEN3_DOM0 NetBSD kernel that came with NetBSD 5.0 does not boot with this Xen kernel. Since it automatically reboots after a few seconds of delay, I can only go by my memory. There's some message about signatures for the two kernels not matching. I had assumed that a NetBSD Xen 3 kernel would work with Xen kernel 3.3. Am I wrong about this?

FWIW, here's the backtrace from booting my DomU under Xen 3:

At this point, I don't know what to do. I liked the idea of going ahead to Xen 3.3 but so far that's a bust, too.
