Re: [Xen-users] XCP - source code for loader in /opt/xensource/packages/files/guest-installer/

Hi George,

That's a slightly odd part of the build. What's going on here is that the 
'loader' file comes from the anaconda RPM, and has to be there because we've 
fixed an issue with recognising xen block devices. Now, I don't believe we 
provide a patched SRPM for anaconda. But it turns out that's just because we've 
been lazy rather than we're hiding any code. 'loader' is part of anaconda, but 
the change is in a staticly linked library provided by kudzu. Probably what we 
should have done is explicitly produce a new anaconda SRPM with a buildrequires 
line that mentions the required version of kudzu. But we haven't - yet.

So, to build this file, you'll need to install the patched kudzu rpm, then get 
the standard anaconda SRPM from the RHEL repositories, and rebuild that. 

I haven't actually tried this myself, but I'm assured this is how it works :-)
