kfraser@15265 1 To build:
kfraser@11215 2
keir@18296 3 1. ./mkbuildtree [<arch>]
keir@16272 4 NB. You can override paths to Xen sources and a (stub) XenLinux
keir@16272 5 build tree via the XEN and XL environment variable.
kfraser@15265 6
keir@16272 7 2. make -C /path/to/kernel/build M=$PWD modules
keir@16272 8 NB. This is your native kernel build tree (or a distro provided
keir@16272 9 stub), not the XenLinux sources referred to in step 1.
keir@18296 10 NB. If you are cross compiling, you need to set ARCH and
keir@18296 11 CROSS_COMPILE too.
kfraser@11215 12
keir@18296 13 You get four modules, xen-platform-pci.ko, xen-vbd.ko, xen-vnif.ko and
keir@18296 14 xen-balloon.ko. Load xen-platform-pci first, and then
keir@18296 15 whichever of xen-vbd, xen-vnif and xen-balloon.ko you happen to need.
