Dear All,
I am trying to run Xenoprofile in DomU domain. I have been able to get the xenoprofile working for Dom0 but havent got luck yet to make it work for domU(s). I am working on AMD Opetron 64 bit processor with Xen3.4 on rhel5.2 kernel. I am facing following difficulties:
1. I am using the images from jailtime.org, have tried ubuntu-8 and centos5.2 images. Ubuntu works fine but centos starts as a readonly filesystem. I tried to mount it as r/w but it didnt worked. I have also tried to create a clone domU by copying files and folders from dom0 kernel (rhel5.2), but it gives me kernel panic when booting up, for this exercise I followed the step from webpage http://www.virtuatopia.com/index.php/Building_a_Xen_Virtual_Guest_Filesystem_on_a_Disk_Image_%28Cloning_Host_System%29.
2. I am not able to comprehend fully, these two steps given in Xenoprofile tutorial (http://www.xen.org/files/summit_3/xenoprof_tutorial.pdf):

a. Copy Xen and kernel images (in /boot) to domU file system.

b. Copy domU modules (in /lib/modules) to domU file system
Please help me if someone has any suggestion regarding above mentioned points.
