Re: [Xen-users] After memory upgrade - slow boot and "ERROR: Invalid che

Thank you for your hints.

However, compiling xen from source does not work at all on a "virgin" linux. Obviously there are a lot of missing prerequisites. Even if it has compiled well, it simply does not start any vm later. (tested with opensuse 11.x netinstall and centos 5.2 netinstall. hvm starts into qemu, pv-grub starts mini-os and hangs ). A configure script might help here and is indeed widely common for building source.

At least I used your suggestion - centos 5.2 + gitco. This seems to work now with 3.3.1.
Hopefully it will do in future. :-)

And then I preferred to install all_in_one from source to not come into
trouble with incompatible kernels. I do not know how the hypervisor is "in
sync" with a non xen.org kernel.

Fair enough. All I can say is that (on Linux anyway) you can mostly
mix-and-match hypervisor and kernel (both dom0 and domU) versions,
provided they're compatible enough. For example, RH's kernel-xen is
built against a modified Xen-3.1.2 sources, while Gitco's Xen 3.3.1
RPM is (obviously) built from Xen-3.3.1 sources.

This is NOT the case on Solaris dom0 though.

In short, use whatever kernel that works :)
