I strongly suspect there is something "Redhat-like" that
xenolinux expects, or simply something missing or misplaced
from the SuSE 9 distribution I'm using.  I futzed extensively,
and ended up building a / (on an alternate partition) for the
guest OS which came mostly from the CD, with pieces copied
in from elsewhere.  There were numerous tweaks I made, and
as usual it's not clear in retrospect which ones really mattered.

If I'm right, this is good news for distros "like" RedHat
(i.e., Mandrake & Gentoo).  Not so good news for unlike
distros (Slackware, Debian, SuSE...).

Keir, Ian, Steven and I are all in the Computer Laboratory
at University of Cambridge. In the Laboratory, the only
Linux distribution (i.e. the official one) is Redhat. Therefore,
XenoLinux's default configuration may be a little bit

However, I personally test Xen and XenoLinux with Debian
on my laptop (which somehow proves Xen's quite safe ;-)
And I don't see any configuration problem at all.
As for Suse, your mileage may vary.

Two quickies for the Xen developers:

1. Are you putting code changes into both the 1.1rc and
-unstable code base?  If not, which one is getting all
the patches that Bin and others have been applying?

All the patches are applied to the unstable tree. We are
very careful about what to put into the 1.1 tree (attention:
the 'release candiate' status has been removed.)

Patches fixing serious bugs are applied to 1.1 tree too.
New features/tools are only available in unstable.

Under top directory of your repository, use 'bk changes'
to see a list of change sets. Or, immediately after a
'bk pull', use 'bk csets' to see all the details you have
'pulled' in. ('bk csets' requires X Window.)
