Re: Updated Xen install instructions


I've been following http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ FedoraXenQuickstartFC5. I've booted into the xen hypervisor kernel, but I'm having problems installing a guest os.

After http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/xenguest-install.py passes control to Anaconda. Anacoda proceeds to download stage2 and when the download completes, I see this error:

    from booty import *
  File "/usr/lib/booty/booty.py", line 28, in ?
    from bootloaderInfo import *
  File "/usr/lib/booty/bootloaderInfo.py", line 713
    if grubTarget[-2] == 'p' or
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

        /dev/pts done
        /sys done
        /tmp/ramfs done
        /selinux done
you may safely reboot your system

Unfortunately, I can't scroll up to see the start of the output. Any ideas how to work around this?

I sent mail about this to the Fedora Xen list[1] a little while ago, but
there are updated instructions on how to take advantage of Xen in FC5
test2 and later available on the wiki at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstartFC5.  This will walk
you through getting the right packages installed for your host as well
as using the nice things now available for doing guest installs via

Coming soon to that location is some instructions on using the support
in Xen for fully virtualized guests given appropriate hardware support.
The xenguest-install script in the package I'm building right now (and
will be available in rawhide tomorrow) will have this support, I just
need to have a little bit of time to write up how to use it. :)
