Hi All,

Its my 4th week now trying to install/configure Xen on Fedora Core 11 on a 64 bit machine. 2 times I followed this link (http://bderzhavets.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/setup-fedora-11-pv-domu-at-xen-3-4-1-dom0-kernel-2-6-30-rc6-tip-on-top-of-fedora-11/) but no success as of yet; I had to reinstall whole FC from scratch... :(

When I reach almost at the last step to add the Grub entries..... this point is painful; as editing grub entries into /etc/fstab and then in /etc/inittab by chaning run-level (initdefaults) from 5 to 3; my system simply crashes and I even can't boot normal FC kernel. and I get the following errors when system reboots:

"Error 15: File not found-- press any key to continue" & "Error 13:Invalid or unsupported executable format".
Being a novice user to Xen and not that much system-techi user; struggling with Grub entries, run-levels and initdefaults.
I wonder is there any short and easy to follow documentation for configuing Xen on Fedora Core 11 like the one I got for Debian (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-xen-on-debian-lenny-amd64); very easy to follow and without any errors.

Thanks in advance for help!

Hi All,

As per my earlier email below, I'm following this link:
( http://bderzhavets.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/setup-fedora-11-pv-domu-at-xen-3-4-1-dom0-kernel-2-6-30-rc6-tip-on-top-of-fedora-11/) to install Xen 3.4 on Fedora Core11 with 64 bit processor.

While completing the step # make modules_install install; when it comes to add Xenified kernel under heading (Install xen-ified kernel :-);
# wget http://x17.eu/linux-2.6.29-xen-r4-aka-suse-xenified-2.6.29-62.1.tar.gz

the wget command returns an error not found; is this link for xen kernel is correct?

After skipping the above step; when I do rest of the suggested changes such as

Add to /etc/fstab :-

none /proc/xen xenfs defaults 0 0
Create a grub entry:-

Set initdefault to 3 in /etc/inittab and reboot in Xen environment,

having /etc/rc.local to start:-

and reboot I get File not found at the Grub boot menu; I wonder what step I have done wrong that gives me this error? Hence had to reinstall whole FC11; as there was no way to change grub or even load FC 11 kernel.

Does there exist any other easy to follow link for Xenifying the FC 11 Kernel? Or can't I xenify FC11 with Yum?

I found the installation of Xen on Debain based systems (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-xen-on-debian-lenny-amd64) very easy to follow when I've done on another machine.

Thanks in advance for help!
