Re: [MirageOS-devel] [Xen-devel] GSoC 2014


I've cc:d the list because other people will probably have the same problem.

Hi David,

By now i have successfully followed "Background" and the
"Getting Started" links on the web page. and you have asked me to get a
small kernel working on xen. Since i'm pretty much new to xen would
please tell me a way to proceed to that.

To install xen: it depends what kind of hardware you have available and your preferences. If you have access to a Linux box then you can install xen from your distribution


If you prefer you can run xen nested inside Virtualbox: (OS X, Linux, probably Windows?)


For general xen install advice, check out the xen-users mailing list:


Good luck,

Thank you,

            Hello, I've CC'ed the technical contact for your. You should
            do the same
            in the future, because not every developer monitors the

            a daily basis.

                Hi all,

                I'm chamika kasun from Sri Lanka, Currenly i'm an
                Undergraduate Computer
                Science and Engineering 3rd Year Student of University
                of Moratuwa, I'm
                interested in taking "Create a tiny VM for easy load
                testing" as my GSoC
                project for 2014. For that project required skill is
                OCaml as mentioned in
                the project description page. By now i have taken a
                OCmal module in the
                University under the Object Oriented Programming
                Languages. And also under
                the Operating System module i have done a small project,
                that is creating a
                small kernel. as well as i'm having a good knowledge
                about the linux
                operating system. i believe that i have potential to
                complete this project,
                please tell me how to proceed further.

        I think a good next step is to try Mirage by following the
        "Getting started" links on the website:

        http://www.openmirage.org/__docs/ <http://www.openmirage.org/docs/>

        See if you can get a small kernel working on xen. It's a good
        idea to join the Mirage developer list
        <mailto:mirageos-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>) and send an email
        there if you get stuck. We've been trying to debug the getting
        started guide, so if you find bugs there then please report them.

        Let me know how you get on! :-)
