Maybe I was not clear enough. The new system with Dom0 will be installed
from cratch with amd64 userland and kernel.
I just want to keep my i386 DomUs which I have running on a 32-bit
You'll have to use the PAE kernel, but no other changes are required.
I've done this conversion on several systems already.
Great, thanks. BTW, do we still need grub to boot XEN kernels?
On an amd65/5.x Xen system, I'm using native NetBSD booting.
Do I need any special option to the kernel or to the xen kernel to
enable all the IDE drives?
I have a problem with my Dom0 kernel not recognizing my IDE drives.
I've two IDE drives - each of 500GB and a SATA card with one attached drive.
The GENERIC kernel recognizes all the drives just fine, the SATA drive
as wd0 and the IDE drives as wd1 and wd2.
But the Dom0 kernel can only find the SATA drive...
This is the relevant part of boot.cfg
menu=Boot Xen with 512MB for dom0:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0
console=pc;multiboot /xen.gz dom0_mem=512M
I recompiled 5.0_STABLE  kernel and the Xen version I'm using is
NetBSD zeus 5.0_STABLE NetBSD 5.0_STABLE (GENERIC) #1: Sun Mar 14
