[Xen-users] mercurial? and 3.1 build setup?
The old mercurial cheatsheet described in the wiki at
seems to be missing ...
which given that 3.1.1 is only available from mercurial is a bit of a
hhmm, ok, it's still available at
... that link comes from http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenWiki
hhmm, that seems way out of date and more targetted to developers than
end-users (probably why it got deleted) ... let's try doing this by
# obviously those just create a /usr/src/xen directory
# the next three commands seem to pull the xen source
# assuming you have mercurial, which is available from rpmforge
# for redhat based installations.
hg pull http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.1-testing.hg
"make world" then seems to go off and do it's thing, but I can't figure
out what it's using for a kernel config... if you cd into the logical
linux-2.6.18-xen_x86_32 directory and try to make menuconfig you find a
very sparse config which doesn't match what make world is compiling...
further you completely screw up whatever config make world _is_ using :(
So how are you supposed to configure a xen 3.1.x build? This is the same
trouble I had with 3.1.0, as described here:
So, can someone please tell me how I'm supposed to build a current xen
install such that I have the modules I want compiled in? If I can only
have one kernel that's fine, I just need it so that I'm not loading
modules via initrd.
If that also helps avoid having to compile every darn module in the linux
source tree, that would also be good (30 minutes later and the box is
still compiling... it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to compile the
pieces I _need_).
