Which platform are you using? Fedora or debian? which version? Below are some basic steps of building it with pv os kernel in a fedora11 platform:-
  1. Be certain you have dev tools installed: ‘yum install “Development Tools”‘
  2. You’ll also need: ‘yum install mercurial gitk dev86 vnc-server bridge-utils zlib-devel openssl-devel python-devel libX11-devel ncurses-devel’

Build / Install Xen

  1. cd /usr/src
  2. hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.4-testing.hg
  3. cd xen-3.4-testing.hg
  4. make xen
  5. make install-xen
  6. make tools
  7. make install-tools

Build PV Ops Kernel

  1. cd /usr/src/kernels
  2. git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git linux-2.6-xen
  3. cd linux-2.6-xen
  4. git checkout origin/xen-tip/master -b xen-tip/master
  5. make menuconfig (Check the Xen options, I’m too tired to go over them all)
  6. make
  7. make modules_install install

Create a Grub Entry:

title Xen 3.4 / Fedora kernel 2.6.30-rc6-tip
kernel /boot/xen-3.4.gz
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30-rc6-tip root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup01/vg_fedora11 ro
module /boot/initrd-2.6.30-rc6-tip.img

Add Entry to /etc/fstab

none /proc/xen xenfs defaults 0 0

Reboot and there ya go…

I still need to bring up the python tools like virt-install and virsh, maybe after I get a break.
