I am currently trying to (re)install Xen 3.5 unstable on a Debian lenny machine. Although I never had troubles with that in the past, it seems that the automatic download of linux 2.6.18 sources does not work this time.
I did not change anything to my method of installation, I just do the necessary modifications for vTPM handling:

- VTPM_TOOLS ?= y in Config.mk

- BUILD_EMULATOR = n in tools/vtpm/Rules.mk

- dmi_type = VTPM_TYPE_MIGRATABLE in tools/vtpm_manager/manager/dmictl.c

- #define TPM_STRONG_PERSISTENCE in tools /vtpm/vtpm/tpm/tpm_emulator.h

Then I just perform a make dist, and here is what I get:

+ git clone http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp

Initialized empty Git repository in /usr/src/xen-unstable/linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp/.git/
error: Connection time-out
warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

+ cd linux-2.6-pvops.git.tmp
+ git checkout xen/master
error: pathspec 'xen/master' did not match any file(s) known to git.
make[2]: *** [linux-2.6-pvops.git/.valid-src] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/xen-unstable'
make[1]: *** [linux-2.6-pvops-install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/xen-unstable'
make: *** [install-kernels] Error 1

I don't know much things about Git, but it seems that the problem comes from the repos, not from Git itself, right?

Here are some precisions about my running system:

  •  I am working behind a proxy. In order to have Git working, I use the following script :


# chmod +x /bin/gitproxy
# git config --global core.gitproxy gitproxy


exec socat STDIO PROXY:$_proxy:$1:$2,proxyport=$_proxyport

It used to work, so I guess the problem does not come from here, but just to be sure I thought it could be useful to notice it.

So two questions I guess :

- How can I solve my problem?

- If the problem is apparently unsolvable, can I just download 2.6.18 sources here (http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg) and have the same result I would have with automatic download?
