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.
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
You can do this many different ways: Install Xen through Yum Download prebuilt Xen RPMs & install them Download the Xen source and compile & install Xen
You can use any method you like to get Fedora on your intended Xen host. All of the setup can be done post-install, though some stuff (like partitioning) is easier if you do it at install time. I get Fedora 14 on my host using the LXDE Live CD spin. The install process is mostly […]

Finally got a pair of 500GB drives to do RAID1. So I needed to move from my single 300GB to a RAID1’ed 500GB pair. For the dom0, I had to do a reinstall of Fedora. Since I would be booting off the drives, and I needed grub setup as RAID aware, it was just easier […]
