Re: [Xen-devel] Build process

I'm guessing you meant the kernel Makefile? If so, then that should
solve the issue as I understand it - probably better to ask the devel
list that question.

I made the ebuild add "ARCH=xen" to the top of Makefile, which seems to remove the need for specifying it on the command line (because otherwise I forget and mess everything up, every single time I try to reconfigure it...) -- is that a safe/sensible thing to do, or would it be better to have users explicitly set ARCH when building?

A note on the install document - add ARCH="xen" to the xconfig line so it reads:
ARCH="xen" make xconfig
the compile may b0rk without it.

I'm running Gentoo and would be very happy to test etc - I have been thinking about writing an ebuild myself, but haven't got around to it.

I've uploaded my current attempt at ebuilds to http://people.pwf.cam.ac.uk/pjt47/xentoo/ (and mentioned it at http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70161). I'm not sure whether anyone else has tried it yet, but it compiles fine for me and only crashes one in three times ;-)
