Re: [Xen-users] compiling custom kernel on 2.0 testing

Those instructions have never worked for me.  I have found a way that
works though:

cd linux-2.6.12-xen0
make ARCH=xen menuconfig # or oldconfig if you want to edit .config or 
# reuse one
make ARCH=xen
make ARCH=xen modules_install install

Hopefully that will work for you.  I'd like to know a way to use a
custom dom0 or domU kernel configuration that doesn't cause the kernels
to be built twice (first time from 'make world' with the default
configurations, second time manually with the commands above) or make me
have to modify the default configuration(s) in 

Good luck.
