Now that Xen and a dom0-capable kernel have been installed, it’s time to combine the two.
There’s essentially two steps to this:
- Set up grub to boot Xen
- Set up Fedora to automatically start the Xen management services
git checkout -f xen/next-2.6.39 && git pull && yes ""|make oldconfig && make rpm-pkg && git checkout -f xen/next-2.6.32 && git pull && yes ""|make oldconfig && make rpm-pkg && git checkout -f xen/stable-2.6.32.x && git pull && yes ""|make oldconfig && make rpm-pkg
Now I have to mix it all together in a crontab (or two, since I’ve got a x86 VM and a x86_64 VM churning away at this).
So I wanted to put together a system that would build i686 and x64 versions of the kernel.
Shouldn’t be hard, I thought. Maybe a simple
yum install gcc.i686, and that’s all.
In short, I was wrong. So very wrong. Read the rest of this entry »
Again, you have two main methods of getting a dom0 kernel on Fedora. (I’m sure there are other ways, but these are the recommended methods)
- Using a prebuilt dom0 kernel
- Compile a dom0 kernel yourself
