- HOW TO INSTALL A SLACKWARE DOMU XEN GUEST
-
-After the ordeal of installing and configuring LILO/GRUB, Xen, kernel-xen
-and possibly also a new initrd, editing rc.local and rc.local_shutdown and
-finally booting on your Slackware XenLinux, you might be wondering how are
-you to load you guest OS. If you look around, you might find Xen domU
-(unprivileged) guest that you can download from the Internet, but some of
-us might want to roll their own. This MINI-HOWTO shows how to install a
-Slackware domU guest. The fastest way is to mount your Slackware DVD on
-/media/SlackDVD, normally this is the mount point chosen by HAL.
-Then run the included domU.sh script:
-
-# ./domU.sh
-
-This will install Slackware onto an 8GB file called slackware.img and a 500MB
-swap file called swap_file. By default, a typical server installation ensues.
-
-Have a good look at the "mydom" file as you need to fill in the full path to
-the slackware.img and swap_file files.
-
-Then run the following command:
-
-# xl create -c mydom
-
-Your Slackware XenLinux domU should boot instantly.
-
-Since Xen domU support has been in mainline kernel for a while now, those that
-wish to have the best performance can compile a seperate domU kernel based on a
-stock Slackware kernel config.
-This is what you have to select/unselect when building domU only kernel:
-
----
-Processor type and features --->
- [*] Paravirtualized guest support --->
- [*] Xen guest support
-
-Bus options (PCI etc.) --->
- [ ] PCI support
-
-Device Drivers --->
- < > Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers --->
- SCSI device support --->
- < > SCSI device support
----
-
-Disabling SCSI support frees up the /dev/sd* device names for use as Xen
-virtual block devices. Basicly, this changes their names from /dev/sd* to a
-Xen device name format /dev/xvd*. If this is left enabled, ocasionaly domU can
-get stuck with this error: "XENBUS: Waiting for devices to initialise..."
-Naturaly, to get the best performance you can disable everything that you
-don't need in a domU kernel.
-
-Note that these files are not intended for a production environment. Users who
-have particular requirements will need to set up their own methods, but these
-files might provide a good starting point. Refer to the Xen manual and
-http://xen.org for more details and options.
