Re: Linux domU disk questions
Do I fdisk and disklabel this second disk in NetBSD or just leave it
blank for Slackware's fdisk to partition?
Leave it blank if you want to use phy:. I myself only use file or lvm
If I then put an ext4 or xfs filesystem on the Slackware partition will
the NetBSD dom0 be able to export this physical disk in the domU
If you're using phy:, I guess so! There's basically three ways of
sending a vdisk to a guest: physical, lv or file-based. Note, the
latter can't be sparse on a netbsd dom0 (vnconfig limitation).
And lastly, is it OK to perform a standard installation of Slackware on
the second disk, and then compile a vanilla kernel with the Xen options
enabled? When I reboot into Xen the Slackware domU will start as a PV
It should be possible, but way more complicated than needed!
guest? Are there other options in the Linux kernel configuration I
should enable in order to run Slackware as a domU in a NetBSD dom0?
Here's a little guide I wrote. It's assuming a linux dom0 but there
shouldn't be much difference. Don't use seek= (sparse files) with dd.
