Does your head ache because you’ve been beating it against a stone wall when trying to build Xen binary executables from the distributed source code? I know how you feel! I’ve been fighting that good fight too for a while now. I’ve learned some amazing facts as I progress – with full glacial speed. I probably should admit right up front that I’m NOT the worlds greatest code wizard. (Likely that’ll be evident as you read my story.)
Except I didn’t write it so I could bask in glory. I put it up because it explains some of the things that sabotage novice Xen builders. These things took me MUCH effort to learn, and I hope they will help you too. (Also because I hope you like a good story.)
It’s an ongoing story which frankly is far from complete. I will keep putting up more content as I move along. Let’s make a deal: I’ll keep "growing" this story and notifying you when there’s more to read – IF you submit comments providing feedback & corrections. Let’s make this a community effort, with the eventual goal of creating a really helpful howto for the xen documentation.
So without any further ado: read it!
