Re: [Xen-devel] Re: xenning gentoo

I've had great success getting Xen running on multiple Gentoo installations using the 2.0.1 source tarball. First, make sure to satisfy all the dependences (twisted 1.3.0 is masked, but required).

Then just follow the build and install instructions provided by Xen. The only thing you have to do differently is before installing, do a make menuconfig in each of the kernel source directories and enable devfs. You can also just modify the .config's by hand. Do a make and the follow the installation instructions.

finally got back to trying to build xen on gentoo using the 2.0.1 ebuild:


unfortunately, it can't find the xen tarball and, quite frankly, I'm not sure where to put all the other pieces and whether or not I need to build manifest etc. etc.

its beginning to look like it might be easier to just build everything from raw bits and reinstall xen anytime I do an update via emerge.
