The #5 of README is not clear in details.
which directory to run depmod and mkinitrd from ?

I see:

# depmod xen-4.0.0
WARNING: Couldn't find symtab and strtab in module xen-4.0.0

# ls -l
total 1356
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1380620 May 13 13:05 xen-4.0.0

Any suggestions ?

Step 5 of the README
   Depending on your config, you may need to use 'mkinitrd' to create
   an initial ram disk, just like a native system e.g.
    # depmod 2.6.18-xen
    # mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod
initrd-2.6.18-xen.img 2.6.18-xen
   Other systems may requires the use of 'mkinitramfs' to create the
   ram disk.
    # depmod 2.6.18-xen
    # mkinitramfs -o initrd-2.6.18-xen.img 2.6.18-xen

You may need to change the kernel version based on what you built.
Also some distros use different commands to build initrd files.

I actually forgot about this step for a second too.
