Re: [Xen-devel] Xen Source code build

Hi Ian/All,

I am sorry, I was mistaken by "For now, a 32 bits host environnment is necessary to build successfuly. building on a 64 bits host machine is not yet supported" in http://xen.org/products/xci_source.html

Well, I am now able to build the xen binary image xen4.1.2, (after installing the missing packages as suggested by you)

-rw-r--r--  1 root root   691748 Jul 27  2011 xen-4.0.2_52-0.2.1.gz
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       21 Feb  9 23:49 xen-4.0.gz -> xen-4.0.2_52-0.2.1.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   734699 Apr  7 11:39 xen-4.1.2.gz
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       12 Apr  7 11:39 xen-4.1.gz -> xen-4.1.2.gz
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       12 Apr  7 11:39 xen-4.gz -> xen-4.1.2.gz

I earlier had the xen-4.0.2 installed through zypper in Dom0 (opensuse 11.4)
(cadlab:/srv/xen-4.1.2 # uname -a
Linux cadlab #1 SMP 2011-12-19 23:39:38 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

But xm commands are not working now.

cadlab:/srv/xen-4.1.2 # xm list
Error: Unable to connect to xend: Connection refused. Is xend running?

Is it not compatible with the openSUSE11.4? Or is there something which I am missing out.

Thanks & Regards

Running configure and/or make in a 32bit shell is not needed.
"zypper in gcc-32bit glibc-devel-32bit" will install the required
packages to compile the 32bit parts in the firmware.
