  • Thread-topic: Structure of the Xen source code

hi all,

I installed Xen on my Gentoo machine successfully from source.
Now i am going through the code.
instead of banging aimlessly for a week or so i thought i should ask the mailing list the following small doubts.

I noticed that following directories are there in my
xen-3.0.3_0-src directories.

1. linux-2.6.-xen-sparse
2. pristine-linux-
3. linux-
4. ref-linux-
5. linux-
6. linux-
7. xen
8. unmodified_drivers

only these directories look like holding the source.
As it looks from the directories i assumed that the xen dom0 patched code must be residing in the linux- directory and that of patched xen domU in linux-
Am i right? or i am missing something?

What exactly does the other directories signify?

Secondly , if i want to start studying the Xen code what would be the correct path to follow.
By path i mean is which the directory i should start digging first?

If a doc about code organisation of the Xen can be given that will be great.

Any other links or pointer'll be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
