Xen 4.3 RC1 installation

I'd like to share how to install Xen 4.3 RC (Release Candidate) as part of a testing on Xen test day. I freshly installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my physical machine.

Xen source is able to download from git repository or tarball.

# download xen source from git repository
$ mkdir ~/xen-4.3
$ cd ~/xen-4.3
$ git clone -b 4.3.0-rc1 git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git

  1. Hi Yeonki

    To build Xen 4.2.1 on Ubuntu 12.04, I use 'make deb'. It builds the dist and a .deb package, easier to install/uninstall on Ubuntu with dpkg. Do You know if this still works this way on Xen 4.3?

    Thanks, your article is very good.

  2. Hi, Marcond.
    Thanks for comment.
    4.3 is still in RC. This means it is unstable and needs time for testing and bug fixes. After this time, in my opinion, it will provide easier way of installing Xen 4.3 like you mentioned.

    Regards,
    Yeonki
