Perfect XEN Setup on Debian Lenny (i386 keeps creating 64bit kernels!)
 
hi, followed your guide at http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...an-lenny-amd64 and worked fine.

the server is running debian lenny, with a 64-bit xen host and I now want to create some 32-bit client machines.

problem is when i do ....

xen-create-image --hostname=xen01.mybox.com --size=10Gb --swap=256Mb --ip=myip --memory=256Mb --arch=i386 --role=udev

it creates the client but with a 64-bit kernel, not 32-bit as i specified => --arch=i386

any ideas?

i'm using Installation method "debootstrap" would that cause the problem?

plot thickens,

tried...

file /bin/ls
which gives me...
/bin/ls: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, stripped

so imagine it really is a 32-bit image

found that out here...
http://www.debian-administration.org...hostR/weblog/4

any views on this?

I'm not sure if this works, but you can try to install linux-image-2.6.26-1-xen-686 on the host and then use the 686 kernel for the guest.
