I've seen the other messages in the list about this, but haven't seen any solutions. Could someone please tell me how in the world I am supposed to fix this error? I'm using the most recent Xen packages for SuSE 9.3 (Xen 2.0.7/Kernel

I am not certain that this is your problem but are you
aware that to build a xen kernel from the SuSE sources you need
_two_ pieces, two source RPM's.

ftp://your.suse.mirror/pub/suse/i386/update/9.3/rpm/src/kernel-source- ftp://your.suse.mirror/pub/suse/i386/update/9.3/rpm/src/kernel-xen-

PS. I would also recommend looking at file:


That will give you a clue as to how SuSE go about building
their different flavours of kernel, including I guess the
xen flavour too.
