Re: [Xen-users] customized debian kernel ...

Ok, Tim thanks for replying ... I'm interested in compiling a >= 2.6.28 kernel since I'm using the newly introduced ext4 filesystem ... If there's no patch for the 2.6.28 kernel I can update to a 2.6.29 or a 2.6.30 kernel ... I'll wait for your suggestions then ... Where and how can I start ?

Greetings ...

Hi ... I recently tried out Xen for virtualization and as I saw it turned out to be just what I needed in matters of providing safe context separation for my apps ... I tried this on a pc with a provided kernel image ( I use Debian ). Afterwards I wanted to try it out on a pc with a custom compiled kernel ... I started to investigate and some guides pointed me towards a patch that I have to apply to enable the Xen architecture so I can successfully compile my own kernel ... However, I can't seem to find it .. where can I get this patch ?? And can anyone tell me if this is the right way to do it??

I'm using Debian Lenny and a 2.6.28 customized kernel ...

I think the latest official Debian / Xen patched kernel is 2.6.26-15.
Patches exist for native kernel.org 2.6.27 and 2.6.29 kernels, however
I'm not sure if anyone is maintaining one for 2.6.28. I do remember
seeing patches for it, but now I can't seem to locate them.

I (or others) could guide you on obtaining and building 2.6.26-15 or one
of the later kernels, which one would be better?
