First off, a big thanks to Falko and all the other authors, I have used numerous howtos from this site and I wanted to say thank you to you all. They have all worked as documented and they have made my life much easier.
Just got in a new server with the 3Ware 9550sx-4lp card installed. I downloaded a Debian 3.1 installation .iso from 3Ware's site to get the system up and running.
Now on the to the problem...
I want to virtualize this server... following Falko's The Perfect Xen 3.0 Setup For Debian (which I have installed and used numerous times) it is using kernel 2.6.12 for the dom0 and U Xen kernels. According to this site....
The 3Ware driver that is needed is default supported in 2.6.14. I believe that the driver sources are available to compile it into 2.6.12 but I don't have any idea how to do this... Never had to do something like this before. According to the documentation that I have found ... during the make everything is reference to /usr/src/linux which isn't the case for compiling the Xen kernels.
I would like to learn how to compile this kind of thing into the kernel but I am on a time crunch as well... Always on a time crunch, right?
How do I compile this into the Xen kernels? Or better yet, how do I get the Xen install from the howto to use 2.6.14, is the 2.6.14 kernel supported in Xen yet?
Thanks in advance.
