Hi there..!!

I have installed one vm with centOS5.5 and I completed its installation and also got access to its console using command qemu-system-x86_64 sheepdog:box02a. But when I terminated the session and again tried to reconnect to same vm its not coming up why is it so..? Last few lines at which it get stuck are as follows,

Waiting for driver initialization.
Scanning and configuring dmraid supported devices
Trying to resume from LABEL=SWAP-hda3
No suspend signature on swap, not resuming.
Creating root device.
Mounting root filesystem.
EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem.
EXT3-fs: write access will be enabled during recovery.
had: dma_timer_expiry: dma status = = 0x21

That's it. It doesn't go further. I have faced this same problem for one more VM. Can you tell me what is the reason behind it?

And one more thing, Is there any way to keep VM running even though we terminate our session? Normally I just enter this command in terminal "qemu-system-x86_64 sheepdog:box02a" and when I close terminal or session it closes and also VM shuts down. I want to keep VM in running  state and get access to it in its current status. How to do it ?

Thanking you,
