    Hi all,
    I'm trying to install xen3 on debian.
    I downloaded xen 3.0.2-2 sources with bittorrent, unpacked and compiled (make world)
    Then, the document says:

    Now we compile a dom0 kernel:

    cd linux-2.6.12-xen0
    export ARCH
    make oldconfig
    make menuconfig

    I have "linux-2.6.16-xen", then I type:

    cd linux-2.6.16-xen
    export ARCH
    make oldconfig

    and I get this error:

    Makefile:439: /usr/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16-xen/arch/xen/Makefile: No such file or directory
    make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16-xen/arch/xen/Makefile'. Stop.

    I have no "xen" directory under "arch":
    ls arch
    alpha arm26 frv i386 m32r m68knommu parisc ppc sh sparc um x86_64
    arm cris h8300 ia64 m68k mips powerpc s390 sh64 sparc64 v850 xtensa

    I hope somebody can help me, thank you!

    The tutorial doesn't work with Xen 3.0.2. Please try it with Xen 3.0.1.

    If you replace 3.0.2 in the download URL with 3.0.1, then you can download 3.0.1. :)

    Thanks for the tip, Falko. By the way I was able to install and run Virtual Appliances Base with a 3.02 install. Debian vm would not run though. The error (trying to set up a Debian vm) seemed to indicate that something was wrong with the grub configuration. Could not find a fix though.

    Sure do like your howto's. They really make using Debian easy.
