Re: [Xen-users] CentOS 5.1 Xen 3.2 patches

Thanks! Will try them!. Do you know of a way to build the xen-lib RPM for both i386 and x86_64 on a x86_64 system? The usual trick with "--target i386" failed with a conflict in x86_64 and i386 GCC options.

Why would you need to?

Because of dependancies:

 sudo rpm --test -e xen-libs-3.2.0-0xs.centos5.i386
error: Failed dependencies:
libxenstore.so.3.0 is needed by (installed) libvirt-0.2.3-9.el5.i386

Ah, just found out that libvirt.i386 is (no longer?) a dependancy for something I have installed. OK, so now it is purely academic :-)

Problem is that the xen module needs the kernel headers for your
current running platform which will not be accurate when you
are setarch'd to i386.

Maybe if you can get the i386 xen kernel headers installed, if you
use mock you will have better luck I believe. Or run a build under
an identical i386 PVM.

Hmmm, A CentOS i386 DomU on a x86_64 system. Does that work nowadays?
