Re: [Xen-users] Re: [Xen-devel] Updating Xen 4.1.x xmexamples files (vfb line required for HVM guests)

I've installed  xen-4.1.1-1.fc16.src.rpm.  It doesn't contain mentioned patch.
Added patch as raw content of


and rebuilt xen-4.1.1-2.fc15.src.rpm.

It's ptetty much standard procedure , if that's the only one issue in place.
But , i don't have kernel 3.0 on F15 so i cannot test.

This back port works on on Ubuntu 11.10 with 3.0.0-7-generic.

No i didn't. There was long thread regarding GCC 4.6 problem when
building "hvmloader" ( F15, U 11.10 both has 4.6)

1. Stefano noticed that problem was GCC 4.6 when building "hvmloader"
2. Official fix was in the same thread
Been back ported to 4.1.1 is resolves the issue.

There is build (PPA on Oneiric) and i believe xen-4.1.1-(X).fc16.src.rpm
already has this patch as well. Pasi knows it better.
Regarding Ubuntu 11.10 :-


Ok - thanx for letting us know. I'm a little surprised at fedora - they are
usually very good at back-porting stuff.
