Thread-topic: no /sys/devices/xen-backend/
Hey all,
tried to compile the kernel using the instructions provided below and when I start xen, it complains about not being able to detect cpu state amount other things.
it would appear that the directory it's looking for is /sys/devices/xen-backend/ which does not exist.
it says the directories have been moved to /sys/bus/xen-backend  which does exists on my system.
however when I went to make the change the file libxenstat-linux.c, it does not exist anywhere on my system.
can anyone provide a direction for me to go?
Did I miss something during compile time?
compile information below.
following instructions found at http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenParavirtOps to ensure I have all the CONFIG_ options correct.
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git linux-2.6-xen
cd linux-2.6-xen
make && make modules && make modules_install && make bzImage && make install
