Hi, We're playing with FBSD8 (paravirt) for some time now, with these results:
- current CentOS 5.2+ (64bit) with Xen 3.3.1 installed via this XEN repo (remove CentOS Xen first): http://www.gitco.de/linux/x86_64/centos/5/rpms/ - self made kernel available from http://kai.freshx.de/kernel-17022009 - you need to install a FBSD8 (32bit!!!) (including svn) and take a snapshot of the disk via dd into system.img (have at least 6 GB space for rebuild of the system later), -> fstab should mount / as /dev/ad0s1a -> xn0 is the netIF. -> add this line to /etc/ttys: xc0 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt100 on secure - bsd8.cfg looks like this kernel = "/XEN/bsd8/kernels/kernel-17022009" memory = 1024 name = "bsd8" vif = ['mac=00:12:34:56:78:90, bridge=xenbr0'] disk = [ 'file:/XEN/bsd8/system.img,hda,w' ] extra = "boot_verbose" extra += ",vfs.root.mountfrom=ufs:/dev/ad0s1a" on_poweroff = 'destroy' on_crash = 'destroy' on_reboot = 'restart' - update to current SVN tree with # svn checkout http://svn.freebsd.org/base/head /usr/src - rebuild everything with # cd /usr/src # make cleandepend # make clean # make depend # make buildworld # make kernel KERNCONF=XEN ... Please note, that rebuilding the svn repo fails to build from time to time ... :-( Rgds K On 4/28/09 5:48 PM, "Manuel Steudtner" <manuel.steudt...@intrail.de> wrote: > Hi Alex, > > ----- "Alex Urbanowicz" <alex.urbanow...@artegence.com> wrote: > >> Hello! >> >> I need to set up a FreeBSD domU on a CentOS box, for testing purposes >> and maybe later for production app. Any documentation I found >> basically >> redirects me to Kip Macy's fsmware.com which is down.
