Actually, Pasi himself managed a bit different :)



I just hacked together Xen 4.0.1-rc3-pre src.rpm package for Fedora 13,
and I thought I'd share it. It should work with Fedora 12 aswell.


Instructions to compile/install:

- Check http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/Xen4.0 wiki page and install the packages/rpms listed there!
- Download xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm
- rpm -i xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm
- rpmbuild -bb xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm

After a while you should see:

Wrote: /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/xen-debuginfo-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.x86_64.rpm

- cd /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64
- rpm -Uvh xen*4.0.1*.rpm
- Install Xen dom0 capable kernel,
wget        http://fedorapeople.org/~myoung/dom0/src/kernel-
edit grub.conf, reboot

Note that Xen 4.0.1-rcX is required for the latest xen/stable-2.6.32.x kernels (,
they won't work with Xen 4.0.0 anymore.

This unofficial src.rpm works for me, hopefully for you aswell :)

Nice and very clear tutorials! Thanks!
