Hey Boris!

I am using your configuration file to install xen4.0.1 from scratch. Thanks! Could you please also send me the grub entry (or the file that you made for the xen boot in the /etc/grub.d/ directory). I just want to confirm that it is the same as the original tutorial.

Also, did you change anything else from the steps given below (from the original mail by Thiago) while installing your version:

The procedure:

Â1- Install all the packages:

Âaptitude update
Âaptitude install bridge-utils build-essential libncurses5-dev dpkg-dev debhelper fakeroot uuid-dev iasl texinfo git-core
Âapt-get build-dep xen-3.3

Â2- Download, compile and install Xen and its tools:

Âcd /usr/src
Âwget http://bits.xensource.com/oss-xen/release/4.0.1/xen-4.0.1.tar.gz
Âtar xf xen-4.0.1.tar.gz
Âcd xen-4.0.1
Âmake xen
Âmake tools
Âmake stubdom
Âmake install-xen
# make install-tools
Âmake install-tools PYTHON_PREFIX_ARG=
Âmake install-stubdom

Â3- Download, compile and install Linux from the Jemery's tree:

Âmake prep-kernels
Âwget http://livexen01.worldweb.com.br/linux-config- -O build-linux-2.6-pvops_x86_64/.config
Âcd build-linux-2.6-pvops_x86_64
Âmake menuconfig # Change whatever you want, if you now what you're doing...
Âchmod g-s /usr/src/ -R
Âmake deb-pkg
Âdpkg -i ../linux-image-*.deb
Âupdate-initramfs -c -k

Â4- Enable Xen at boot:

Âupdate-rc.d xend defaults 20 21
Âupdate-rc.d xendomains defaults 21 20

Â5- Configure the Grub2:

Âvim /etc/grub.d/40_custom

---- cut here ----
exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment. Be careful not to change
# the âexec tailâ line above.

menuentry 'Xen 4.0.1, Ubuntu 10.4 kernel' {
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ recordfail
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ insmod ext2
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ set root='(hd0,4)'
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ multiboot (hd0,4)/boot/xen-4.0.1.gz dummy=dummy dom0_mem=832M
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ module (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz- dummy=dummy root=/dev/sda4 i915.modeset=0 earlyprintk=xen ro
ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ module (hd0,4)/boot/initrd.img-
---- cut here ----

ÂNOTE.: Pay attention to you root partition and also you'll need to disable the KMS (maybe the nomodeset option works for you) of your videoboard.


ÂChoose the right Grub2 menu entry...

There is no "/proc/xen" either!

What do you all recommend? Should I use a different kernel (if so which one) or a different .config file?

Can I fix the present set up in some way?

I find it amusing that I am learning stuff about the internal setup of Xen that I wouldn't have had this install been "seamless"...ÂÂ

Cheers to that!

That's a core issue , why xend fails to start. During pvops Dom0 load "udevd" should
create :-

# ls -l /dev/xen
total 0
crw------- 1 root root 10, 58 Sep 16 18:41 evtchn
crw------- 1 root root 10, 57 Sep 16 18:41 gntdev

On any system Ubuntu 10.04.1 Server, F13,F14,etc
Then xend will start after Dom0 gets loaded.

xenfs is not mounted. Here is the output for the mount command:

I did a modprobe on xenfs but I cannot mount it yet. Could you please give me the correct command line arguments for doing so. Here are my outputs:

root@XenOpen:~# modprobe xenfs
root@XenOpen:~# mount xenfs
mount: can't find xenfs in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Thanks a lot for your advice. Really appreciate it!

Do you have xenfs mounted?
see if the following line comes up in the list if you type mount:

# mount
xenfs on /proc/xen type xenfs (rw)

If not, then you can try mounting it manually. If xenfs is compiled as
a module, you may have to modprobe it first. If it is not enabled in
kernel, then you have to rebuild your dom0 kernel, and enable it.

On my (Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 based) system, this gets mounted
by either udev or xend itself (it is not in fstab).

In my experience on this system, xend fails ususually due to one of the
following reasons:
1) Failure to mount xenfs (because it is not configured, or the module
not loaded).
2) Inconsistent installation of xentools (in wrong python directory or
mixed with older version).
