I’m still debugging my sys-gui-gpu VM, and I’d like to interact with it a bit while it’s running, while it still has not managed to start the
/var/log/xen/console/guest-sys-gui-gpu.log shows that despite the driver woes the VM is still running, showing a getty prompt and kernel console traces.
If I try to open a plain old shell with
qvm-run -p sys-gui-gpu 'bash -i', I just don’t get any output (my
^C gets highlighted in red as the shell output should, but I just don’t get to interact with any process in the VM).
xl console, for its part, refuses with
Unable to attach console (maybe because the console is already redirected to a file?)
… and I don’t get any clue in the various logfiles.
Any idea ?
