    In the xen for sage howto there is a part three
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian_p3

    since I may need ip tables and quote is there a simple way to recompile the kernal i have 2.6 sarge installed. The way to do it in how to is ok but I am finding it difficult to follow.

    What exactly do you find difficult to follow? You only need to copy & paste from the tutorial.

    Xen install

    well this for example But it may be quite simple once i know how:


    In the kernel comfiguration menu that shows up we enable quota, iptables and the dummy network driver as modules. This is where you enable these modules:

    File systems --> [*] Quota support
    <M> Old quota format support
    <M> Quota format v2 support

    Device Drivers ---> Networking support ---> <M> Dummy net driver support

    Device Drivers ---> Networking support ---> Networking options ---> [*] Network packet filtering (replaces ipchains) ---> IP: Netfilter Configuration ---> <M> IP tables support (required for filtering/masq/NAT)

    [*] means: build into the kernel statically.
    <M> means: build as a kernel module.

    When you run
    Code:
    make menuconfig
    , a kernel configuration menu shows up.

    for example means: go to Device Drivers, then to Networking Support, and then enable Dummy net driver support as a module (M).

    Xen install from source

    It semed to go ok I followed your suggestions.

    just one small snag at the end

    update-rc.d xend defaults 20 21
    and
    update-rc.d xendomains defaults 21 20

    update-rc.d: etc/init.d/xen file does not exist
    same for xendomains files does not exist.

    i create by touch command xend and xendomains just need to know script to put in file then place in /etc/init.d

    Then you did something wrong. What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/init.d
    ?
    Please try to follow the tutorial as close as possible and avoid typos, etc.

    update-rc.d xend defaults 20 21
    and
    update-rc.d xendomains defaults 21 20

    update-rc.d: etc/init.d/xen file does not exist
    same for xendomains files does not exist.


    qiu:)
    .in kernel config Y for *
    and M for module

    the only change i made when I installed sarge 3.1r1 was i had to disable
    USB legacy in BIOS so i could use labtop keypad in sarge. you see i have kernel 2.6 on hda1 ubuntu Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-10-686and sarge hda2 Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386 thing is I cannot reboot. but can shutdown. Since this may or may not effect xen i have posted my kernel print-out at http://pastebin.ca/49447
