Re: [Xen-users] filesystem image of Fedora Core for Xen?


My nose is plugged - I have to breath through my mouth.

I'm glad you think such a project is "cool" -- so do I, maybe others, maybe not.

Because Xen is in development (with a so called stable version) is all the more reason to promote Xen not a reason to shy away from it.  In addition, Xen is part of several related projects like Xenoboot for example and a larger and impressive perspective of networking.  Therefore supporting Xen in a way is also supporting the other Cambridge projects aimed at the betterment of networking of which Xen is a part.  Anyway, I have complete confidence in the Xen development team.  Also, I see no harm to anyone and only help to others in providing this service if it is an acceptable one as far as the development team is concerned.  I have not heard from them yet on this issue -- they are probably busy making the greatest product ever.

Thanks - Ted

Please Ted, save the marketing speak (FREE, NO CHARGE etc.)

Your idea is great, and I honour you... putting together a Dom0 dist
would be cool.

I´m gonna be focusing on getting domU (guests if you will) working. 
I'm quite happy with my dom0 setup (imho you don't set up/trash dom0's
everyday.. that's what the domU's are for).

If you wanna try out a Dom0, install Fedora Core4-test1 or FC3 and
pull Xen in from development.  I've also preordered SuSE 9.3 because
they say they will be packaging Xen functionality there.

Also.. keep in mind Ted, that Xen is in development, breathe through your nose.

peace and love,

 Okay, you were talking about DomU but I sort of thought you would be
interested in doing Dom 0.  I looked at the site you provided and (forgive
me if I got it wrong as I often do) that is nothing to do with Xen. I want
to find people -- if there are any -- interested in building an Xen-based
(linux [Fedora, SuSE, Debian, Mandrake and the rest]) Dom 0 system
installations in a way that they can be downloaded or put on DVD as an
installation disk -- a kind of distribution if you will. In my opinion this
would be a real service I could supply to the Xen community as I know of
many people struggling to get Xen working or even afraid to try because of
the time involved if problems turn up as they do for many.  At least with
working models they would be over the Dom 0 threshold and maybe looking at
DomU issues. Right? A fully working (all tools based on most recent stable
versions) and NO CHARGE service is what I am talking about consistent with
Open and Free software development.  If there are such people then I would
provide the facilities -- FREE.  So my previous email still stands and it
looks as if you are not interested in participating in such an effort.
 Thanks -- Ted

 If I understand you, you seem to be saying that for various distributions
like Mandrake, Fedora Core, Gentoo, SuSE, etc., you are willing to produce
Xen-based (Dom 0) linux base systems and put them on line???
 no, that is domU, not dom0

 I was going to ask the developers of Xen to consider this as a facet of
their operation but I don't think their mandate allows them to do this or
they don't see doing this directly in line with what they are doing. 

I think everything is fine. if you ever used QEMU, you must know the
site hosting the qemu images (www.freeoszoo.org) ? the situation is
same here.
