I am trying to install ElementaryOS as a pv guest on my server for testing purposes.
Elementary OS is a fork of Ubuntu Precise. Elementary does not come with PV support, however, I can obtain the corresponding ubuntu images from:
Here is a copy of my elementaryOS.cfg
name = "elementary" kernel = "/home/curios/elementary/vmlinuz" ramdisk = "/home/curios/elementary/initrd.gz" memory = "1024" disk = [ "phy:/dev/vg0/elementary,sda1,w", "file:/home/curios/elementary/elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso,sdb,r" ] vif = ['bridge=xenbr0'] on_reboot = 'destroy' on_poweroff = 'destroy'
So far it's working but I just got the following error which I am concerned about. Would somebody look over my cfg and make sure I have everything set up correctly?
┌────────────────────────┤ [!!] Partition disks ├─────────────────────────┐ │ │ │ Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition │ │ /dev/xvda1p1 -- Invalid argument. This means Linux won't know about │ │ any changes you made to /dev/xvda1p1 until you reboot -- so you │ │ shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting. │ │ │ │ ERROR!!! │ │ │ │ Ignore │ │ Cancel │ │ │ │ <Go Back> │ │ │ └─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘
Of course, I could just install elementaryOS as an HVM guest, but this is more challenging.
Thank you for your help and advice
