RE: [Xen-devel] debian and gfs and xen

No ideas sorry, but I'd like to know exactly what versions you are using, eg xen 2.0.6, linux-, etc, and how you built them.

I'm using the Xen 3.0 snapshot from FC4, rebuilt as a deb package (GFS would crash under 2.0.5), Linux 2.6.12, and the GFS 'Stable' CVS from 2005/06/22.

Basically, I patched a kernel by hand with the FC4 source, and built both the dom0 and domU kernels via make-kpkg. I then built the GFS modules the hard way (went to the source dir, ran ARCH=xen ./configure --kernel_src=/path/to/kernel/src, ran make, and copied *ko over to the Xen session), and installed it all.

I had to use multicast networking; if I used the standard methods, the nodes would get removed right away. With Multicast, things work great.
