[Xen-users] åå: Re: Is there any way to attach floppy image under Xen 4.1?

Hi Ian,
     Thank you for your relpy!
     Because upstream qemu does not support vhd backing file,  we have to use qemu-dm and xm for vm management.
     Maybe my configuration is not correct , or is there any way that can attach floppy disk with xm command?

Best Regards

I don't know about Xen 4.1 but for modern Xen with the xl toolstack then
you can pass arbitrary arguments to the device model using
device_model_args in your config file, which should enable you to pass
the necessary options.
I've no idea if xm supported the same thing or not, you could always use
a wrapper script around the dm I suppose.
