[Xen-devel] Building Xen tools


I have been trying to build xen tools according to this wiki - http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions/CrossCompiling

I want to boot a stripped off linux kernel with just a shell as Dom0. I picked up the source for dome from kernel.org. I'm able to boot dom0 and now I would want to load domU for which I would need the tools. 

How do I cross compile the tools for that particular target environment? The wiki has instructions particular to Debian and I'm running into problems while replicating those. 

The wiki mentions "The environment which you run on your dom0 must be the same. The instructions use Ubuntu Raring and therefore that is what you would need in your dom0 as well. " which I'm having problem understanding

Do you mean that if I have linux 3.10 kernel as dom0 then I would need to build the tools on a 3.10 linux kernel?

I'm fairly new to this so please correct me if I'm wrong anywhere.
