[XenPPC] FYI: xenppc-unstable updated

2007-02-27 Thread Hollis Blanchard
I pushed a xen-unstable merge to xenppc-unstable yesterday. It pretty much shouldn't matter, and we aren't all the way caught up with upstream xen-unstable yet, but just FYI. -- Hollis Blanchard IBM Linux Technology Center ___ Xen-ppc-devel mailing

[XenPPC] Should the platform name be Xen-Maple

2007-02-27 Thread Jerone Young
In /proc/cpuinfo of a domain0 you see the following: processor : 0 cpu : PPC970MP, altivec supported clock : 2300.00MHz revision: 1.1 (pvr 0044 0101) processor : 1 cpu : PPC970MP, altivec supported clock : 2300.00MHz

This comes from the fact that we are running xen from an underlying host platform. for example, if you boot linux without xen but on SLOF your machine name is Maple. see: arch/powerpc/platforms/xen/setup.c define_machine 246 define_machine(xen) I'd be interested in changing this to Xen

Jimi, the context is that we need to modify Fedora's installer so that it properly detects the system it's running on. That means we're implementing a user-visible interface right now. I think Xen-Maple is a terrible name to permanently commit ourselves to. Let's not. PPC's cpuinfo seems to have

Ok. But there is another thing I left out. Under global firmware you normally have a line machine: in /proc/cpuinfo that shows the machine platform you are running on. In case of the JS20s this looks like: machine : CHRP IBM,8842-21X On Tue, 2007-02-27 at 14:56 -0500, Jimi Xenidis

I agree, but in our current Kernel source the string in question comes from the machine description. Am I missing something? -Jx On Feb 27, 2007, at 3:43 PM, Hollis Blanchard wrote: Jimi, the context is that we need to modify Fedora's installer so that it properly detects the system it's

platform is build-time and comes from define_machine(). That should be Xen. machine we can display ourselves via ppc_md.show_cpuinfo(). We can get that from the device tree, just like CHRP does. On Tue, 2007-02-27 at 16:55 -0500, Jimi Xenidis wrote: I agree, but in our current Kernel source the
