Re: [Xen-users] Debian Etch as DomU on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Dom0

I don`t know if it is exactly what can help you, but I can present a "case".

I`ve followed
and all works fine for me. This doc recommends the use of another xen
kernel rather than
the ubuntu default, because it has some buggy.

I`m running two debian etch 64bit as domU and ubuntu server hardy 64bit
as dom0.
Since I had to install the same kernel on debian, for access
/lib/modules/2.6.24-16-xen/, I had to
install module-init-tools-3.3-pre1.tar.bz2 from source rather than
debian repositories, and had
to use equivs for satisfy module-init-tools debian dependencys.

important, when compiling module-init-tools, use
./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin --sbindir=/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc
