After spending the whole day yesterday trying to install Sarge on SATA RAID, finaly i completed the instalation using a custom sarge compilation from http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/
(This way i would like 10x kmuto for the distro)
In the installation steps i was also told to go to second console and write :
echo "libata" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo "ata_piix" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.19-rc3-1-486
So that GRUB could load the SATA RAID drivers before attempting to load the kernel. And it actualy works!
All was ok, but after installed Xen 3.0.3 from sources and modified menu.lst like this:
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.19-rc3-1-486
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.19-rc3-1-486 root=/dev/md4 ro
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.19-rc3-1-486 (single-user mode)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.19-rc3-1-486 root=/dev/md4 ro single
title Xen 3.0.3 / XenLinux 2.6
kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=64000
module /vmlinuz-2.6-xen root=/dev/md4 ro max_loop=255
I get an "Kernel panic - not syncing: Out of low memory"
I think the problem is related to the initrd thing, i tried to do the same on
Xen initrd: "update-initramfs -u -k 18.104.22.168-xen" but i get this error:
"/boot/initrd.img-22.214.171.124-xen has been altered. Cannot update."
Please if anyone has any ideeas how can i do make it work? maybe kernel recompilation?
Thank you in advance!
I made some further research, and i think i forgot to say smth important... the SATA drives i was speaking about are SAS drives...i this could help anybody to tell me how to import drivers from the working debian to the xen kernel. 10x
