Re: [Xen-users] RedHat Enterprise Linux RPM - PAE question


Here is what I am doing:

I am using the Xen RPMS (from http://xensource.com/download/ dl_304rhel4.html) EXCEPT for the kernel RPM, on a RHEL 4 system.

I need to build some additional outside modules for use with the kernel that is going to be run on this system and they won't build without the source for a configured kernel. So I downloaded the Xen source tarball (from http://xensource.com/download/ dl_304tarballs.html) and did a 'make install-kernels'. This gave me a kernel, which I setup with grub and stuff. But when I reboot into that kernel I get the PAE MODE MISMATCH error.

I WANT to use all the xen rpms except for the kernel one ...

So the xen RPMS above were compiled with or without PAE?

I attached the relevant portion of my kernel config to the original post. I'm not 100% sure if PAE is enabled in the kernel for that matter or not.

Hmm, rebuilding the rpm is not the same as using the xensource tarball?!

the system keeps rebooting with the following error:

**Loading Domain 0**

If the redhat kernel is the same as fedora, it is only pae-enabled, so
you need to build with PAE. I never did that, I'm guessing this is
configured in config.mk.

Alternatively you can download the pae-enabled binaries from xensource.

For rebuilding your rpms, which you probably need to fulfil
dependencies fo some of the redhat-specific tools, and to get newer
kernel versions, ask the redhat support/fedora lists.
