Re: [Xen-users] Debian 6/Squeeze with Xen 4.0.1 doesn't work out of the box

I don't know why but my (un?)conscious mind insisted that the Debian
package xen-linux-system-2.6-xen-amd64 would "naturally" put the right
entries in the grub config (as it did) and in the right order (as it
didn't) so it would boot the hypervisor by default.

This behaviour is documented:


| If you installed Xen on lenny, the default kernel booted by GRUB
| Legacy was the one providing a Xen hypervisor and dom0 support.
| This behavior has changed with GRUB 2 in squeeze: the non-Xen

with solution:

| mv -i /etc/grub.d/10_linux /etc/grub.d/21_linux
