  • Thread-topic: Building XenGT for Intel embedded board

Hi Everyone,

I am currently exploring on bringing up XenGT for an Intel embedded board.


I came across this document relating to bringing up XenGT for the Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge/Haswell platform



Our current Intel embedded board is up with an Yocto image integrated with the Intel BSP for the board. The board uses ABL boot loader.


I saw in the XenGT document for the Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge/Haswell platform, that there is mention of Qemu alone and no mention of any Intel BSPs. Don’t we require Intel BSP for dom0 kernel to work in the XenGT hypervisor? Or is a generic version of Intel BSP integrated with the kernel image link https://github.com/01org/XenGT-Preview-kernel.git.


Also, as we have an Yocto image in the Intel board, we might have to cross compile the Kernel, Xen and Qemu builds as mentioned in the link above for our Intel embedded board using a Linaro toolchain. If not, is there a way, we can link this particular version of XenGT directly with our Yocto image for the Intel board by including the meta-virtualization layer as mentioned in the link http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-virtualization/about/ and doing ‘bitbake xen image minimal’?


Please advise which is the correct route to take in this regard.
