Could you include the actual errors, please?

Comment 2 Chris Palmieri 2007-04-18 23:55:28 UTC
To be honest I blew away that installation to get myself up and running.  I also
found out it is not just the Xen kernel - the standard fc6 kernel also does not
boot with xfs configured.  I could try to create a new partition and install on
there if needed but it will take me a while to get around to doing it.

Chris, you probably hit bug #212201, if you had selinux enabled.

A workaround is to install w/o selinux, update your kernel, then re-enable selinux.

Lacking more detailed info, I assume this was a dup of bug 212201.  Feel free to
re-open if you find out otherwise.
