Re: [Xen-users] where is the kernel?

Hi Mauro,

yes that's true for example my /boot direktory in domU looks like this

blubba:/boot# ls -al /boot/
insgesamt 1260
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    4096  6. Apr 20:25 .
drwxr-xr-x 23 root root    4096  6. Apr 20:24 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   84389 13. Mär 22:20 config-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1187071 13. Mär 22:20 System.map-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64

If only installed the linux-modules for the configured kernel in the xen config in dom0

blubba:/boot# aptitude search linux-modules*
p linux-modules-2.6-xen-amd64 - Linux 2.6 modules on AMD64
v   linux-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64                   -
v   linux-modules-2.6.26-1-openvz-amd64            -
v   linux-modules-2.6.26-1-vserver-amd64           -
i linux-modules-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 - Linux 2.6.26 modules on AMD64
p   linux-modules-xen-amd64                        - Linux modules on AMD64

Hope that helps.

Hi Mauro,

normaly you're installing kernel's directly in dom0 and pass the values for
kernel + initrd image over xen config parameters in DOM0 on of my xen
configs look like this:

#  Configuration file for the Xen instance ADlb01, created on
# Tue Sep  9 15:31:15 2008.

#  Kernel + memory size
kernel  = '/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64'
ramdisk = '/boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64'
extra   = 'console=hvc0'

Yes I know but ....... when I upgrade the kernel in dom0?
I have to upgrade only the linux-modules in domX?
