X starts and promptly exits.

But only under the Xen Hypervisor.

This time the keyboard device is there even under the hypervisor, but xinit “cannot invoke xkbcomp” under the hypervisor. It’s there in /usr/bin/xkbcomp, but xinit cannot “invoke” it under the hypervisor while it can invoke it when it’s not running under the hypervisor. Mysterious.

I’m trying to run xen 4.0 but it’s not working, It seems that the input devices (keyboard and mouse) are not being supplied to the linux kernel from the xen hypervisor.

I’m keeping this here for easy reference.
