here's the rundown...

i'm making an arch linux domu

sudo xl create -c arch1.cfg

Parsing config from arch1.cfg
libxl: error: libxl_device.c:859:device_backend_callback: unable to connect device with path /local/domain/0/backend/vbd/11/2049
libxl: error: libxl_create.c:934:domcreate_launch_dm: unable to add disk devices
libxl: error: libxl_device.c:859:device_backend_callback: unable to disconnect device with path /local/domain/0/backend/vbd/11/2049
libxl: error: libxl.c:1467:devices_destroy_cb: libxl__devices_destroy failed for 11

what is going on here?

here's my arch1.cfg

name = "arch1"
kernel = "/media/disc/arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/media/disc/arch/boot/x86_64/archiso.img"
extra = "archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201306"
memory = 1024
disk = [ "phy:/dev/kimbra/arch1,sda1,w", "file:/mnt/bak/archlinux-2013.06.01-dual.iso,sdb,r" ]
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:3e:3e:3e,bridge=xenbr0' ]


any help, fellow gentoomen? i can't find anything on google other than the possibility it may have something to do with the iso...

Hi

Not a solution, but, have you tried the xen-user mailing list, or their irc channel? I think you may have some luck there.

And if you find the solution, you can post it here and help others.

Bye

If I had to throw a wild guess, your disk devices seem wrong
you should try "xvda"-ish names for physical PV devices

For example, for a PV Ubuntu VM I use the following config file

Code:
bootloader = 'pygrub'
extra = "console=hvc0"
vcpus = 4
memory = 4096
disk = ['phy:/dev/loop1,xvda,rw']
name = "ubuntu"
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3E:00:00:01,bridge=br0' ]
xen_platform_pci=1


and for an HVM Ubuntu VM the following one (to install the system), then I switch to the PV config above

Code:
builder = 'hvm'
vcpus = '4'
memory = '4096'
disk = ['phy:/dev/loop1,xvda,rw','file:/xen/iso/ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso,hdc:cdrom,r']
boot = 'dc'
name = 'ubuntu'
vif = ['mac=00:16:3E:00:00:01,bridge=br0']
xen_platform_pci = 1
vnc = 1
vnclisten = '0.0.0.0'
vncpasswd = ''
usb = 1
usbdevice = 'tablet'


HTH
