Dear all:
I am a newbie for Xen, and now I want to install Xen on my Fedora 13 machine. I follow Mr.Pasi Kärkkäinen's tutorial, which is "Fedora 13 Xen 4 Tutorial", but I can not boot with the new kernel.
I can not go through the step "Verify the Xen step after reboot", when I reboot and choose the new kernel, the system hang on "Starting xend daemon", so the new kernel could not be booted, and I can not verify the Xen setup.
The information on screen are "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 64: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_to_scan: No such file or directory"
                                                   "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 65: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/sleep_millisecs: No such file or directory"
                                                   "/usr/sbin/ksmtuned: line 66: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run: No such file or directory"
and these three lines seems loop forever.
Before this information the "Starting ksm:"  Failed.
Information are "/etc/rc5.d/s84ksm: line 44 /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/max_kernel_pages: No such file or directory"
                          "/etc/rc5.d/s84ksm: line 45 /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run: No such file or directory"
My computer is Intel Core2 Duo CPU, 4GB RAM, and I use Fedora 13 (x86_64) linux.
I tried my best to follow the tutorial exactly, So far the differences are:
1) I install the fedora using GUI, and then use root in console to operate the computer.
2) When I yum the package, the size are different, I assume I have more packages when I install the linux based on GUI.
3) I think I download the config-file and do the "make oldconfig" based on
4) When I downloaded the Linux 2.6.32.x pvops Xen dom0 kernel, it is according to the link, so I execute "depmod -a" and do the following steps by changing to, and "dracut" give me no warning.
I modified the grub.conf already, but could not boot the system using the new kernel, so please tell me where I make the mistake?
I really appreciate your help.
