Xen-4.0 source & kernels packaged for Ubuntu

I’ve spent a couple of months trying to pack some recent Xen releases to ubuntu-debian packages.

The whole procedure can be run by simple:

wget https://virtualusr.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/mk-xen400.doc
catdoc mk-xen400.doc > mk-xen400.sh
sh mk-xen400.sh

mk-Xen400 – Ubuntu debian packager for Xen-4.0 and kernels

Ubuntu-package latest “xen 4.0.0” by:


Ubuntu-package latest “xensource” kernels by:

./remakeXenKernel.sh stable-2.6.31.x~1
./remakeXenKernel.sh stable-2.6.32.x
./remakeXenKernel.sh stable-2.6.33.x

Tested on Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.4 with 64bit AMD 2 core CPU (AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250). Intel-64bit and i686-32bit not tested, might need some tweak in remakeXenKernel.sh where kernels .config is autogenerated. Tested running 32 bit OpenSUSE 11.2 and 64bit Ubuntu 10.4 as a domU-s in 64bit Ubuntu server 9.10 dom0.

Enjoy Ubuntu Xen4.0 server
