  • Thread-topic: running latest dev versions of xenopsd on Debian/Ubuntu


I've written a wiki page describing how to build the latest development version 
of "xenopsd" (and its dependencies) from source:


"xenopsd" is the name of the domain manager of the XCP toolstack -- it is 
responsible for starting, stopping, migrating VMs.

Being able to build the development version is really useful if you want to:
* check out a new feature
* reproduce a bug
* test a fix

Let me know if you try this and have any problems or suggestions!

There are a couple more components of the XCP toolstack that need some fixups 
so they can build easily, in particular:
* squeezed: manages memory ballooning
* networkd: configures VM networking
* rrdd: collects and archives performance statistics
* xapi: manages the overall resource pool

Hopefully we can work on these one-by-one until they are all as easy to build 
as xenopsd.
