I have a virtual machine landscape consisting of a CentOS 5.3 Dom0 with
Xen 3.1.2, some PV CentOS DomU's with PCI passthrough (same versions),
and I'm trying to implement a F10 DomU with PCI passthrough. I set
everything up for the passthrough, and the F10 guest can't see any of
the devices with lspci. If I boot a CentOS PV machine with the same PCI
passthrough configuration, the devices show up with lspci. I've seen
some posts in various places about this issue, but no solutions. How do
I implement this?
Our group are using Fedora (We updated the system to Fedora 12
recently) in our research cluster and we virtualize the computing
resources using Xen. I have do a lot test and we finally settle on a
stable Xen solution for our cluster. The test shows it is quite stable
and we are satisfy with the virtual machine's performance.
We use Xen 4.0.0 and Xenified Linux kernel 22.214.171.124 to set up Dom0
since Fedora 12 no longer provides kernel form Dom0:
Fedora 12's kernel is already pv_ops enabled. We are happy to install
Fedora 12 in the virtual machine without any special configuration.
All the packages are from Fedora's repository:
I know both the Xen and the kernel are not the most latest ones. But
the current ones are enough for us.
Please give your comments on this solution. Your suggestions will be
I have been using Michael Young's Xen Dom0 kernels. With kernel 2.6.34
in Rawhide, what is keeping Xen 4.0 and a DomU kernel from being pushed
to Rawhide? My understanding was that kernel 2.6.33 would provide the
pvops features required to make a Dom0 kernel palatable to Fedora. Did
this feature not make this release?
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/XenPvopsDom0 has not been updated
in a while, but I suspect that a Xen Dom0 kernel will not be in Fedora 13.
Couldn't find some info via google.
Fedora no longer seems to have a kernel-xen.
If I try add xen via Virt-Manager,
I get no xen kernel.
I already have qemu installed,
If I get xen up and running can it
also use the already installed *.img files?
As the host is x86_64, it will only guest x86_64, correct?
