[Xen-devel] RE: [Xen-users] Quest for a better FAQ


        After I got gray hairs and already wrote a hearthbreaking e-mail to
this conference why the hell my hvm domain will not start I figured out I do
not have installed the package libsdl-console, which is necessary for the
start even if I specified sdl=0 in the domain configuration file. I think,
this package should be listed in the required packages for xen (at least
version 3.1.0), but I haven't seen it in some xen documentation or howto.

        So, maybe into the faq could come a hint about the recommended /
required libraries even if running DomU with vnc access only - something
like "What libraries should I have installed if I want to be sure I can
start xen HVM domain" or something like that :-). 

        From my research, I have installed following packages, which have
not been installed by default (using Debian Etch 4.0), so, maybe this could
be added to the faq you are creating just now (the libraries installed by
default are very dependent on the distribution which is used).

        So, I installed following packages which have not been installed by
default in Debian Etch 4.0:

python-xml (this package is normally also not listed in the documentation as
libsdl-console (second library not listed in the available documentations)

There is already isntalled the library libssl0.9.8, but I had to create the
link to libssl0.9.7 by the statement
ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7 
because xen needed from me the version 0.9.7

According the the usage of the local sdl library - if on the server are
installed o x-windows, this was a problem for me and I could not get
framebuffer working at all... So maybe also another libraries are necessary
if I want to attach to the DomU with graphic output locally...

        With best regards,

Subject: [Xen-users] Quest for a better FAQ

I'm working on making a better xen faq.  Hopefully I can use it to
replace the one we now have on the wiki.  

I'd love to know what people think really are the most frequently
asked questions?  

I'm going to paw through the mountains of data that is the xen-users
archive and see what I see.  That should be interesting, but probably
not as useful as your opinions.
