    Xen

    ive got a fresh install of fedora 11 and ive installed the virtual management stuff in F11, i then installed XEN and went to set it as the default boot entry in grub, but it hasnt created any grub entries.

    Can anyone paste the grub entries from a machine running Xen on Fedora?

    Odd - did you try installing Xen by checking "virtualisation" in the install wizard? I don't run Fedora, but CentOS should be very similar:

    title CentOS (2.6.18-53.el5xen)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-53.el5
    module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
    module /initrd-2.6.18-53.el5xen.img

    You'll want to check and see the kernel version number you have and change the references above accordingly.

    yeah, i had tried to make the entries and they turned out something like that and i get "Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory"

    the entries i have are:
    Code:
    title Xen
    kernel /xen-syms-3.3 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_fog-lv_root rhgb quiet
    initrd /xen-3.3.gz

    Ah, that's because the item you selected doesn't fit in to memory. Er... Don't know, never had that one before. Some random architecture problem - the Xen-based kernel can't see your all your memory for some reason? Some 32 bit / 64 bit issue? Have you tried Googling the error code, any luck?
