OpenSuse 11.1 PV DomU at Xen 3.3 Ubuntu Hardy Dom0 (all 64-bit)

Release been tested as PV DomU was Beta 4. Xen’s 3.3 pygrub loads DomU via image created during install utilizing local HTTP source with no problems , compare with native Xen 3.2 Hypervisor behavior on Ubuntu Hardy Dom0 ([1]). Same procedure obviously works at Xen 3.3 CentOS 5.2 Dom0. Due to
failure install Beta 4 in Dom0 (bug submitted) names of xenified kernel and ramdisk are unknown up on image creation, even though it doesn’t cause any problem in case Xen 3.3 Hypervisor back ported from Intrepid Release.
Setup Apache at Ubuntu Hardy Dom0.
# apt-get install apache2
# losetup /dev/loop0 /etc/xen/isos/suse11.1.iso
# mkdir -p /var/www/suse
# mount -o loop /etc//xen/isos/suse11.1.iso /var/www/suse
Installation profile :-
root@boris-desktop:/etc/xen/vm# cat suse11.1.cfg
disk = [‘phy:/dev/loop0,hdc:cdrom,r’,’phy:/dev/sda10,hda,w’ ]
vif = [ ‘mac=00:16:3e:4a:f5:00, bridge=eth0’, ]
vfb = [ ‘type=vnc,vncunused=1’ ]
bootloader = “/usr/bin/pygrub”
kernel = “/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz-xen”
ramdisk = “/boot/x86_64/initrd-xen”
on_reboot = ‘restart’
on_crash = ‘restart’

# xm create suse11.1.cfg
# vncviewer localhost:0
