To load Ubuntu Intrepid Server PV DomU via serial console files vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-server,initrd.img-2.6.27-7-server usually gets copied to Xen 3.3 Dom0 and parameters root="/dev/xvda1 ro", extra="2 hvc0" are included into startup profile. At the same time "root" & "extra" may be specified via new entry into /boot/grub/menu.lst located at DomU.
File /etc/event.d/tty1 should be also modified to work for xen console instead of vfb.It's exec line has to reference hvc0 instead of tty1. All changes above been done at DomU allow to load DomU via pygrub and serial console avoiding using virtual frame buffer.
