I am currently working on trying to make a TemplateVM out of a Linux from
Scratch installation (or more accurately, BLFS).
Progress has been immense, but I've run into a roadblock I'm not sure how to
For starters, I've gone through and successfully compiled:
I've done the best I can to adapt Archlinux instructions, taking note of path
modifications and installing everything, gruelingly by hand. Everything built
as best as I can tell, but I cannot get `qvm-run` to execute a command. I'll
try to give as much information as I can about the state of this systemd-based
1) lsmod shows xen_netfront, xen_netback, u2mfn loaded successfully on boot
2) The following systemd scripts are enabled (at boot) and run and exit cleanly:
3) The following systemd scripts are enable and run in the background:
Any other services have been either a) mistakenly missed and not installed OR
b) ignored as they implement a functionality I believe is non critical at the
time, e.g., qubes-sync-time
If there are any other processes I've missed, please let me know, because it's
probably just one of the make targets I've somehow overlooked.
4) /dev/xvdb mounted as /rw. /rw/home and /rw/usrlocal all work as expected.
xen mounted at /proc/xen also listed in fstab and seemingly working (based on
xenstore-read name returning system name).
5) Lastly, theres qubes-gui-agent, which when run automatically hides the HVM
window and makes it non-interact-able. This is currently disabled in systemd,
but is installed.
And this is where I'm stuck.
I'm trying on dom0: qvm-run lfs "shutdown now -h" and it returns "Running 'shutdown
now -h' on lfs" but the VM never responds.
What else might I provide to help troubleshoot this and to detect what seems
like the last-mile in getting this working as a template?
Does it work if qubes-gui-agent is running? You should still be able to
get a console session with "sudo xl console VM". Never built my own
