Hi Emmanuel,

Sorry not to reply to your last mail.

Jeremy maintains the branch 2.6.32 so you can download the last stable

Do not use git if you are not used to using it.

Two options to download

1) Use Firefox, safari ....go on 


and click on "snapshot" for to dowload the tar.gz

2) Command line (I think this is the option you will use :) )

wget "http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git;a=snapshot;h=60b1e4f20a6cf45f07d2aef7eecd7fd58007ff1e;sf=tgz" -O linux-

tar xvzf linux-

cd linux-????


use config or oldconfig as you need (make oldconfig, make menuconfig as you need....)

then build the kernel. These are the lines I am used to building the kernel - the old way -  not tested for this kernel but should work :)

make -j4 bzImage modules
make install modules_install
mkinitramfs -o /boot/config-

Hello guys

I tried the procedure described here: http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Compiling_Kernel_2.6.32
but it did not work:

# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git linux-2.6-xen

# cd linux-2.6-xen/

# git checkout -b xen/stable-2.6.32.x origin/xen/stable-2.6.32.x
fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching branches.
Did you intend to checkout 'origin/xen/stable-2.6.32.x' which can not be resolved as commit?

I am not a git-guru, so I do not understand the message...

Thanks for your help !!!
