Re: [Xen-users] Offline builds

Hi Brett,

I assume you are going to build unstable xen (but not released xen tarball)
offline. I had the same issue as you in the past.

In addition to xenbits.xen.org to download qemu-xen or qemu-xen-traditional, you
should need to download ipxe.git from git.ipxe.org, or more like seabios.

How I workaround this issue is to manually:

1. Download seabios.tar.gz, ipxe.tar.gz, qemu-xen-traditional.tar.gz or
qemu-xen.tar.gz to corresponding location.

2. Modify tools/firmware/Makefile, tools/firmware/etherboot/Makefile and
tools/Makefile to avoid downloading those third-party source code.

Here is an example I used to use to build unstable mainline xen offline. I do
not remember which commit it is for. It should help you know which file you
would modify.
