I did not mean to reply directly to you Michael, it seems gmail picked your
email directly and I saw that after I hitting Send, sorry about that one.

Subject: Re: [Fedora-xen] xen and fedora
and correctly so, Michael, that --oldpackage did the trick, thanx a lot, I
have bravely removed previously installed xen and kernel, I then reinstalled
xen and kernel-22.214.171.124 via yum, rebooted the machine remotely, I executed
uname -r and
126.96.36.199-175.xendom0.fc13.x86_64 is returned :)
Error: Unable to connect to xend: No such file or directory. Is xend
wha am I missing? I tried
"/etc/init.d/xend start" but I get no output

apologies for posting on xen mailing list earlier,
I have fc14 running kernel-188.8.131.52-91.fc14.x86_64.
$ yum install xen
I would like to compile xend modules with this,
I did steps according to
$ make -j4 bzImage && make -j4 modules
$ make modules_install
$ depmod 184.108.40.206 ( its here where I later run into problems as I do not
have the right kernel to use, maybe?)
$ cp -a arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-220.127.116.11
$ cp -a System.map /boot/System.map-18.104.22.168
$ cp -a .config /boot/config-22.214.171.124
$ cd /boot/
$ dracut initramfs-126.96.36.199-91.fc14.x86_64.img 188.8.131.52
Will not override existing initramfs
(/boot/initramfs-184.108.40.206-91.fc14.x86_64.img) without --force
$rpm -qa | grep xen
is there something I am missing?
Please point me to the right direction. I will do the rest
Thank you in advance
I have compiled Jeremy's kernel on Fedora 14 and it turned out that
xen-pciback is compiled into the kernel as a module. So I made a
"xen-pciback.conf" file in /etc/modprobe.d. The problem is that I have
to get modprobe to load before the drivers to the PCI devices I want to
hide are loaded.
So my question is how do I locate the drivers and find the points in the
boot scripts where I can put the modprobe so that it is loaded before
them? I tried lsmod and modinfo but they don't give much information. I
only managed to find the driver for the Intel EXPI9400PT adapter e1000e.
I want to hide the graphics adapter (Radeon 5450), Two USB2.0 ports, the
Intel adapter, the USB3.0 controller and the Audio device, their
assignments on machine are as follows:
pci_0000_00_12_0 (USB 2.0 should give 2 ports)
pci_0000_00_14_2 (Audio device)
pci_0000_00_0a_0 (Intel Adapter)
pci_0000_00_09_0 (USB 3.0 Interface)
but the question is where can I locate their drivers and how can I tap
into the boot sequence so that the xen-pciback driver is loaded
beforehand? The page
gives no information about this. It mentions something about "install
skge ... " but it doesn't say where this line is to be put and how you
figure out that skge is the driver to be disabled.
I have set up the machine to init level 3 in the /etc/inittab (my
install of F14 have no upstart targets). The xen-pciback module seems to
be working. Something is wrong with the onboard sound chip. No drivers
have ever successfully initiated it, neither in Windows nor Linux. So it
is marked as an assignable device when looking it up with xm.
I'm trying to compile Jeremy's paravirt_ops kernel on Fedora 15 using
the following tutorial:
but in the compilation process I get error messages that some .c and .h
files are missing. I couldn't locate the packages that would house these
files for Fedora 15 so I wonder how to compile it for F15.
I want to use Jeremy's kernel because I need dom0 pciback drivers for
using VGAPassthrough and PCIpassthrough.
