I tried the "opensuse101-20060514.tbz"opensuse101-20060514.tbz" from there
and after "tar -xjf "opensuse101-20060514.tbz" it contains the
files "hda6.img", "opensuse101.cfg" and "vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-xen"
I'm not sure what you mean with "using cp" but this is what I did:
# cp vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-xen /
# vnconfig -c vnd0 hda6.img
# vi /usr/pkg/etc/xen/opensuse
kernel = "/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-xen"
memory = 300
name = "opensuse"
vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:00:50:02:f0, bridge=bridge0' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vnd0d,0x306,w' ]
root = "/dev/hda6 rw"
This seems to work now: the Linux domU boots (with many error messges!)
and I can login as root, but there's no working network
configuration, ...might be some more work necessary as expected, to get
it usable :-(
Many thanks for your help & Greetings,
