I am trying to build a Xen domU on my Arch x64 Linux. I have started dom0 successfully. My Xen kernel version is Linux arch xen 3.2.9-1-ARCH, my domU config file is

name = "arch0"
memory = 256
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-linux"
ramdisk = "/boot/initramfs-linux-xen.img"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sdb1,xvda,w' ]
root = "/dev/xvda ro"
#vif = [ 'mac=08:00:27:eb:41:01' ]
hostname = "arch_domU0"

After I ran xm creaet domU -c, the terminal hangs at Using config file "./domU0".. And in the /var/log/xen/xend.log file, the last line says:

[2012-03-09 22:46:58 2802] DEBUG (DevController:628) hotplugStatusCallback /local/domain/0/backend/vbd/11/51712/hotplug-status.

I read the ArchWiki thoroughly, but cannot find an help.

This seems to be a Arch only issue. This post has the solution.
