“Following bellow is brief instruction of mentioned set
up loading xen back-end, evtchn, gntdev devices separately from
pvops kernel 2.6.32.24 under Xen 4.0.1 on top Ubuntu Maverick
Meerkat Desktop. Due to Desktop environment we have first to
disable Network Manager and restart networking manually updating
/etc/network/interfaces. This step is not required on the Ubuntu
10.10 Server. Libvirt 0.8.3 is available via Maverick Meerkat
repositories. Two patches have been applied to official 4.0.1 tar’s
ball. First one updates xen back-end rules, second one allows to
load Ubuntu 10.10 PV Guest via standard trick with install same HVM
first and using a ready image to load PV DomU via pygrub.
