newbie: "Is xend running?"

Paula R T Coelho
hello all,

it's my first time ever with xen (or even virtualization in general).

I installed Xen 3.2 on top of a Debian Lenny kernel 2.6.26-2-686 via
apt-get. Boot options are:

title Xen 3.2-1-i386 / Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-2-xen-686
root (hd0,0)
kernel /xen-3.2-1-i386.gz dom0_mem=512000
module /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-xen-686 root=/dev/mapper/athena-root ro console=tty0
module /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-xen-686

but aparently xend it not up:

# xm list
Error: Unable to connect to xend: No such file or directory. Is xend running?

even though:

# ps -ef | grep xen
root        31     2  0 17:41 ?        00:00:00 [xenwatch]
root        32     2  0 17:41 ?        00:00:00 [xenbus]
root      3320     1  0 17:41 ?        00:00:00 xenstored --pid-file
/var/run/xenstore.pid
root      3327     1  0 17:41 ?        00:00:00 xenconsoled
root      3781  3727  0 17:48 pts/0    00:00:00 grep xen

I searched google and I've found many posts with the same error, but
got quite confused I confess, because none of the posts (that I could
find) had the same combination of kernel + xen version, and as such I
didn't feel comfortable to try the proposed solutions, as i hardly
understood them...

would you mind guiding me a bit here?

many thx in advance
p.

I was having the same problem, and I have fixed it by reinstalling dom0 with a 64bits kernel.

I have a similar setup (Debian Lenny) but did not encounter the issues
you described.  I used the following tutorial to get my installation
installed and operational.
