Virtualization With Xen On Debian Lenny (AMD64)
 
For those of us who are running i386, maybe you could expand a little
on the slight diffrence please?

(The setup might differ slightly if you are on an i386 system.)


thanks

wiseman:)

Instead of running
Code:

apt-get install xen-hypervisor-3.2-1-amd64 xen-linux-system-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 xen-utils-3.2-1 xenstore-utils xenwatch xen-shell xen-tools
you use

Code:

apt-get install xen-hypervisor-3.2-1-i386 xen-linux-system-2.6.26-1-xen-686 xen-utils-3.2-1 xenstore-utils xenwatch xen-shell xen-tools
And when you run the xen-create-image command, make sure to use --arch=i386 instead of --arch=amd64.

Nice article.
I am running debian lenny on amd64, as well. But i would like tu run a i386 guest. I would prefer paravirtualized one.

What I should install on dom0 to run i386 domU.

Thx

Doesn't matter - both i386 and x86_64 dom0s can run an i386 domU.

Thank you. I know, but if I run i386 guest on 64bit dom0 with 64bit kernel then it can be problem, or no?

Finally I found solution with pygrub, so I run xen kernel from guest. Because to lenny amd64 is not possible install i386 domU kernel.

Obviously you didnt understand to my problem. Anyway thank you :)

pygrub
 
Hi Lejmr,

Could you please explain how you made it work with pygrub? I'm looking myself also for a solution. There are indeed some applications which require a 32bit guest.. Unfortunately I would like to stick to my 64bit lenny as a host :)
