Thread: Xen installation

  1. #1

    Default Xen installation

    Hi,
    I have an existing OpenSuse 11.3 (64 bit) box serving a couple of websites. I would like to enable Xen.
    Question - If I install Xen through Yast, will my existing configurations be reset and will I loose my existing data?
    Does Xen have to be installed on a clean system?

    Thanks,
    Leslie

    installing xen will add another kernel to your system, plus some other
    packages. it _shouldn't_ endanger your data in any way, nor mess around
    with your system. that said, it's always a good idea to back up, since
    accidents do happen...

    let me add that, while i managed to load the xen kernel and install
    everything, i couldn't get any gest to run on my system. i'm using the
    latest kernel from Kernel:/HEAD and a bunch of non-standard repos--that's
    more than one reason for things to go wrong. since i don't really _need_
    xen, only wanted to play around, i dropped it at that.

    unless everything works on your first try, i'd suggest searching these
    forums & openSUSE mailing lists for the topic. there's quite a bit
    information, for different scenarios.
