Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06 amd64 and Windows XP in Xen 3.0
I am coming from a bloody week of wrestling against packages, bugs and "make world"s trying to run Xen in Ubuntu 6.06 amd64 on an AM2 3800+ and to make a Windows XP Pro domU.
I searched on the web some resources that would explain how to run Windows on Xen and I found some very good tutorial that unfortunately don't fit exactly my configuration and my purpose. These are the sites I took as a basis for my setup:
- dom0 = Debian Sarge 3.1, domU = Debian Sarge, Xen 2.0.7 32 bit installed from binaries or source, paravirtualization
- dom0 = SUSE 10.1, domU = Win XP Pro, Xen 3.0.2, Intel VT hardware virtualization
- dom0 = Ubuntu 6.06, domU = Ubuntu, Xen 3.0.1 32 bit
- dom0 = Kubuntu Dapper Drake, domU = Win XP, Xen 3.0.2-2 32 bit, AMD SVM hardware virtualization
These are all the steps I did and the problems I encountered during this Calvary :-) (I come from Windows with a little linux/unix background):
