I’m not an expert at Debian packaging but I’ve been gotten tired of building Xen on every systems and losing the advantages that packaging brings like tracking file conflicts. So I decided to try and package Xen though I have had no luck so far. I am making slow but steady progress. I wanted to package both 4.0.1 and 4.1.0 so I could compare them. I’m finding that 4.1.0 has stability issues and switching between the two without packages is incredibly time consuming.
- Xen 4.0.1
- linker error: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lxenctrl
- Xen 4.1.0
- ipxe – requires package for ipxe
- linker error: ld: unrecognized option ‘-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions’
- packaging help:
