Compile kernel in the normal way, using the XENHVM config.

cd /usr/src
make kernel XENHVM
edit /etc/rc.conf

Change network interface to re0, save and reboot.

Well, im using the AMD64 ISO image,

So i'll have to recompile the kernel? Are there instructions anywhere?

Thanks.

Hi,

Have you compiled XENHVM kernel?  It makes some improvements to networking.  
Ensure you add the correct device to /etc/rc.conf afterwards, I believe it 
changes to "xn0" when running XENHVM.

Subject: HVM paravirt block/nic drivers
Hi Guys/Girls,


Successfully got a FreeBSD 8 HVM DomU installed. I see its using the
emulated block/nic drivers.

Is there any work being done on writing paravirt drivers for FreeBSD in
HVM?

Regards,

David
