Are you following:http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XAPI_on_debian
Or are you trying something
[matthias] Yes, I was following the instruction on that page, more specifically I downloaded the _latest_ bins
and attempted to install them into a Debian rootfs. All the other pkgs from latest installed just fine, except for
On that note, I think the dependency on blktap-dkms is also obsolete. I was able to install the xapi pkg via this line:
# dpkg --ignore-depends=blktap-utils,blktap-dkms -i xapi_0.1+1315480729-1_i386.deb
One more thing, there seems to be a dependency on a modules.dep from a particular kernel:
Setting up xapi (0.1+1315480729-1) ...
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/modules.dep: No such file or directory
xapi still installs, though. In my case, I do not even have kernel modules, but rather I have compiled everything into vmlinuz.
