Tech Virtualization Xen Howtos Install Xen 3.2.1 on CentOS 5 the easy way

Install Xen 3.2.1 on CentOS 5 the easy way

NOTE! I have not tried this rpm kernel! Until I get to it take it as a howto with no possible gaurantee. I will get to testing it extensively the first week of September as I'm on vacation.

 

 

I just did a howto on compiling Xen 3.2.1 for CentOS5 but then I found this kernel and Xen rpms that you can just download and install.

 

For x86_64

  1. wget http://www.halsign.com/files/TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-x86_64.tar
  2. tar -xvpf TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-x86_64.tar
  3. cd TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-x86_64/
  4. rpm -ivh *.rpm
  5. reboot and select new kernel at grub prompt

For i386

  1. wget http://www.halsign.com/files/TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-i386.tar
  2. tar -xvpf TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-i386.tar
  3. cd TurboGate-HTools-1.2-rhel5-i386/
  4. rpm -ivh *.rpm
  5. reboot and select new kernel at grub prompt

I haven't as of yet used this new kernel and Xen but it might make it a lot easier than compiling Xen 3.2.1 from scratch.
