Howdy,

I’m having an issue with the console for CentOS 6 domUs.

When I boot the domU I can see the console just fine. After grub has made its selection I get these errors:

xenconsole: Could not open tty `’: No such file or directory libxl: error: libxl_exec.c:118:libxl_report_child_exitstatus: console child
[0] exited with error status 2

After that the boot process continues fine and I’m able to sign into the console of the domU instance.

However, when I close the console my command prompt doesn’t work properly anymore, keypresses aren’t printed to the screen.

This problem is nearly identical to this issue:

However, for my situation xenconsoled is running.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?
