        I don't know if this is your problem, but generally when you reuse a
config  to build a differet kernel, you have to "make oldconfig" so you
might try that between step 6 and 7 (or potentiall move step 6 to before
step 5 and do the make oldconfig before the make prep-kernels, not sure that
that does).  Otherwise, hopefully someone else can assist you.

Subject: [Xen-users] Trouble on building 3.2.1

Hi All,

I need some lights on building 3.2.1. Here is the process I used: (the
steps described in the README file)

1). mkdir build
2). download xen-3.2.1.tar.gz and unzip
3). hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg
4). cd xen-3.2.1
5) make prep-kernels
6) cp my.config to build-linux-2.6.18-xen_x86_32/.config

Here my.config is the one I am currently using,
Is that a problem? I am currently running 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5xen
without problem.

7) make dist
8) make install
9) depmod
10)  mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod \

Should I add more modules to initrd?

11) edit the grub.config and reboot.

The problem I am facing is that:
1) If I do not overwrite the .config, some modules are missing, like
blkbk, netbk
2) Using the above process, the build and install seemed successful.
However, after reboot, xend is not started properly. I checked the
process, tapdisk is not running.
I manually load the modules using modprobe, like netbk, blktap ..

Still the xend is not started.

Can anybody give me some help? Any suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks a lot.
