Xen on SuSE Linux
Setup notes - Xen 3.0 on SuSE Linux
Start by installing SuSE Linux v10.1
Once installed make sure the network setup is as desired. In my case I am using only eth1 so I set eth0 and eth2 to disabled by modifying the appropriate files in /etc/sysconfig/network/
Use Yast to install the xen packages. My server has 8G RAM so I make sure to choose the xen-pae packages which allow it to see more than 4G.
The specific packages...
Note that any dependencies get pulled in automatically.
Tweak /boot/grub/menu.lst to make sure the Xen kernel is the default. Add dom0_mem=128000 to the kernel line (bug? otherwise xen kernel aka Dom0 gobbles up almost all available memory as evidenced by xm info).
Reboot and 'xm list' - should see something like this:
# xm list Name ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State Time(s) Domain-0 0 7355 4 r----- 801.0
Try 'xm info' also. System is now ready for creation of guests.
I also tweaked /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp to change the device used to build the bridge (xenbr0)
(network-script 'network-bridge netdev=eth1')
