[Xen-users] FC4, Xen 2 issues: udev, eth0, disk
I have a Fedora Core 4 box with Xen loaded, the Xen
packages being xen-2-20050522,
kernel-xen0-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4. The install was from
Issue 52 of Linux User & Developer DVD.
I installed my system with a developer level install
and several 3G slices, no UI (just command line). I
dump/restore-ed by OS onto a slice to act as a domU.
After some tweaks, it does seem to run well with a few
exceptions (xen file at end):
a. udev fails to load
udev seems to fail at boot. Not sure if it affects
anything I need though. Is this an issue of domU
b. eth0 fails
I do not seem to get a dhcp for eth0. brutils are
loaded on the main dom0 and I do see a vif entry. I
also 'see' an eth0 device on the domU, however the
dhcping seems to fail. I have tried adding the dhcp
key into the xen config and uncommenting the script,
but no combination seems to give me a eth0.
c. hard drive access
One of the things I am trying to do is benchmarking.
I am trying to use lmbench however by default there is
no hda, just the hda1 from the config. I did try
adding in a definition mapping hda on dom0 (read
only), but get an error from the lmbench about an
ioctl failure. I have seen others write about lmbench
performance on a domU so wanted to check with the list
if there was anything special to get the hard drive
test working or if that is something you cannot do in
