Hi all,
I have been working on my little OS port and things seem to be going reasonably OK. I am writing it from the ground up using David Chisnall's book "The Definitive Guide to the Xen Hypervisor" and referring to the mini-os implementation. I find there are too many dependencies and additional bits in the mini-os code to just pull the bits out that I need. Maybe once I've got a better understanding I'll be able to go back and do something there.
My next channel is to talk to my little OS from a Windows HVM. As a start I have offered a shared page from my domain which I want to map in a little Windows app.
I have been looking for a Windows API to access Xen, but I haven't found anything. I took a quick look at the GPLPV drivers but that is quite a large set of files. Is there an easier starting point, and maybe even a little documentation?
