Virtualisation in Fedora status, jan 2005



Virtualisation in Fedora status, jan 2005

The good news:
- working Xen and kernel-xen0/U RPMs available in rawhide
- grubby knows how to set up multiboot for the xen0 domain
- people are starting to use the available RPMs
- the network scripts now work in the presence of ipv6
- a Fedora project page on virtualisation is available:
  http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/virtualization/
- there is a HOWTO document, explaining how to set up Xen
  with Fedora
  http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart

Bugs & limitations:
- X does not work on many systems, and appears to cause memory
  corruption on others
- current xen0/U guest kernels are single CPU only
- #146571  xen gets stuck at boot with "APIC error on CPU0"
- #146575  xen interferes with X acceleration
- #142046  XEN Graphical bugs and application instability in Xen dom...
- #140847  X inside Xen only works when linux/libint10.a is moved

TODO:
- update to latest xen-unstable snapshot
- apply the AGP patch, to try and remedy the X problems
- build and test SMP xen0/U guest kernels
- build and test xen and xen0/U kernels for x86-64
