How to install xen 3.2.1 from source on ubuntu hardy + intel quad core....
Jimmy Brake Jun 02, 2008

This was what i did to get xen 3.2.1 installed on a fresh install of hardy heron running on a intel quad core. I hope it can help you.

apt-get install gawk libssl-dev libncurses5-dev pciutils-dev build-essential texlive gettext libx11-dev bridge-utils iproute udev python-dev libzlcore-dev hg-buildpackage ghostscript transfig


cd /usr/src/


hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg


wget http://bits.xensource.com/oss-xen/release/3.2.1/xen-3.2.1.tar.gz


tar xfvz xen-3.2.1.tar.gz


cd xen-3.2.1


(i edited the Makefile and changed x86_32 to x86_64 near the top of the file ...)


make world


make install

 

then install xen-tools .. i was fearful apt-get install xen-tools would fubar my xen .. so i installed that from source also

 

apt-get install debootstrap libtext-template-perl libconfig-inifiles-perl 

cd /usr/src

wget http://www.xen-tools.org/software/xen-tools/xen-tools-3.9.tar.gz

tar xfvz xen-tools-3.9.tar.gz

 cd xen-tools-3.9

 

There are good many tutorials about using xen-tools to get various os's installed on your new xen server.
