These shouldn't matter, but you've got a lot of unnecessary options
here. "com2=115200,8n1 console=com2" - these should be auto detected
now. "nomca nosmp" - no longer necessary. "console=tty0
console=ttyS1,115200,8n1" - this will split your kernel output between
VGA and serial, but if you use autodection as mentioned above, I think
ttyS1 becomes ttyS0. You can also just remove these for only serial
console and it should autodetect correctly. "rhgb" - this is an option
for Red Hat Graphical Boot, but based on your other elilo entry, I'd
guess you're running Debian, so doesn't do anything. So you could
reduce this to something like:
append="dom0_mem=1G -- root=/dev/sda2"
And for curiosity:
fdisk -l /dev/sda
fdisk doesn't understand GPT partition tables and shows the entire
disk as a single partition. This is a way of protecting the partition
from old utilities. Try 'parted /dev/sda print'.
Disk /dev/sda: 36.7 GB, 36701199872 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4462 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/sda1 1 4463 35841015 ee EFI GPT
Remark: the non-xen kernel works of course :)
Posting your entire boot log may help see what's going on. In
response to your followup; 8,2 is correct for sda2:
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 2 2007-05-13 20:42 /dev/sda2
If you're using Debian as your dom0 OS and have all your drivers
builtin, why are you using an initrd? That may be causing you problems.
I usually test with Debian and don't require one. Thanks,
Well. Not all drivers, but the needed for the FS mounting :)
Indeed parted showed the partitions:
Disk /dev/sda: 36.7GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
1 17.4kB 130MB 130MB fat16 boot
2 130MB 9567MB 9437MB ext3 /
3 9567MB 13.8GB 4194MB linux-swap
and my fstab:
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
Hm, I have read somewhere about the necessity of using LABEL= in append
line of elilo.conf.
Maybe that is the cause?
However i've tried now, following your suggestion:
append="dom0_mem=1G -- root=/dev/sda2 LABEL=/"
And, surprise, no xen console output, and of course restart because of
rootfs panic. So I guess the console lines still have to be there ;)
For the bootlog, it's quite a problem cause it doesn't get logged
