Introduction to Xen

Xen is a server virtualization application.

Project Homepage: http://www.xen.org

Dependencies

Required

Xen requires a Linux distribution using GRUB bootloader and running on a P6-class or newer CPU (if PAE is enabled).

Optional

  • TeXLive or other TeX distribution providing LaTeX

Non-Multilib

Note: Xen hvm capability relies on hvmloader (located in the tools subdir of the package); hvmloader currently builds only as a 32bit binary. On pure64 systems, hvm functionality will not be realized (unless someone provides a way to compile hvmloader as a functional 64bit binary).

Compile the package:

make world 

Install the package:

make install 
depmod 2.6.18.8-xen
make linux-2.6-xen0-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig KERNELS="linux-2.6-xen0"
make linux-2.6-xen0-build
make linux-2.6-xen0-install
depmod 2.6.18.8-xen0

Multilib

This package does not provide any libraries so only one installation is required.

Configuring

       root (hd0,0)
       kernel /xen-3.2.0gz
       module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-xen ro root=/dev/<*d**>
