Method #2:

- In addition to the KERNELS=linux-, I also tried re-creating the symbolic link in the Xen-3.2.0 directory 'linux-2.6.18' to (wrongly) point to the linux- source tree.

RESULT: the link got re-created back to point at the original linux-2.6.18 during 'make world'.


Any clear and complete instructions would be highly appriciated.  (The README in the Xen source tarball is also not sufficient or complete).


Hey Jitendra,

As Todd correctly pointed out - Xen tries to get a correct copy using mercurial each time during the full build process. So just put your code or a pointer to it in the linux-2.6.18 directory and comment appropriate lines in buildconfigs/src.hg-clone. That worked for me as well.


PS: I am not a expert but an intermediate level user in linux/kernel builds, etc.  Prefer instructions spelled out step-by-step.


Here ==> http://pastie.org/228729  is my src.hg-clone file that works.
