Dear All:
I am a newbie for Xen, and now I want to install Xen on my Fedora 13 machine. I follow Mr.Pasi Kärkkäinen's tutorial, which is "Fedora 13 Xen 4 Tutorial", but I can not boot with the new kernel.
I can not verify the Xen step after reboot, the process of making the kernel has no error, when I reboot and choose the new kernel, the system hang on "Starting xend daemon" for ever, so the new kernel could not be booted.
The information on screen are "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 64: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_to_scan: No such file or directory"
                                                   "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 65: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/sleep_millisecs: No such file or directory"
                                                   "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 66: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run: No such file or directory"
and these three lines seems loop forever.
Before this information the "Starting ksm:"  Failed.
Information are "/etc/rc5.d/s84ksm: line 44 /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/max_kernel_pages: No such file or directory"
                          "/etc/rc5.d/s84ksm: line 45 /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run: No such file or directory"
My computer is Intel Core2 Duo CPU, 4GB RAM, and I use Fedora 13 (x86_64) linux.
I tried my best to follow the tutorial exactly, So far the differences are:
1) I install the fedora using GUI, and then use root in console to operate the computer.
2) The linux pvops dom0 kernel version I downloaded is
3) when I execute the "make oldconfig" a new option is "watchdog timer support", I select NO.
4) I execute "depmod -a" and do the following steps by changing to, and "dracut" give me no warning.
I check the folder of the error, only /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/max_kernel_pages not found, others are there.
I am not familiar with Linux kernel, so please help me, or should I try another Linux? I have stopped here for too long, I want to make it work.
Thank you very much
