Default 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.

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

Default 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

Toni
