If your guest cannot see disks, make sure you have the xen-blkfront module loaded in your guest. You can use a serial port on the dom0 to get the full Xen log. I have a 4.10 PKGBUILD here: https://gitlab.com/archlinux-packages-johnth/xen

@mbroemme if you happen to have a git repo or PKGBUILD for 4.10 I'd love to give it a try; for some reason I'm having issues with linux install disks not detecting the HDD on any VM I try to setup and also been getting some errors after xen boots prior to the kernel but haven't been able to capture them at all.

Hoping that 4.10 resolves these for me.

@das_j: According to the wiki 4.10 was released. If you want I can also take it over and continue to maintain it.

@ezequiel.ezb: Import key via 'gpg --recv-keys 83FE14C957E82BD9' and retry build

All dependencies install correctly, however, I get this error afterwards:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... xen-4.9.0.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key 83FE14C957E82BD9) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified! makepkg -si 21.93s user 5.66s system 5% cpu 9:01.31 total

@das_j: Xen 4.9 has full multiboot2 support to make EFI + Grub + Xen working out of the box. See https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_EFI

In Arch Linux there is already grub2 2.02 with working multiboot2, so could cou please apply the following patch to grub-mkconfig-helper:

https://zuppy.pm/patches/xen-grub2-efi-multiboot2.patch

I've tested it already, with this patch Xen can be booted via grub in BIOS and UEFI mode. Without the patch you are forced to switch to BIOS mode or use EFI binary directly which makes multi-OS / grub2 booting very complicated.

@das_j: There is a bug in this package which will result in systemd failing to load kernel modules:

Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'gntdev'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'netbk'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'blkbk'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'xen-scsibk'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'usbbk'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'pciback'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd-modules-load[4287]: Failed to find module 'blktap2'
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
Nov 24 15:09:49 server systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

The reason is because the shipped xen.conf is never installed during package build, therefore the xen default is installed but not working for Arch Linux kernels. Could you please apply the following patch to PKGBUILD:

https://zuppy.pm/patches/xen-modules-load-fix.patch

Does anyone knows how to get coretemp/lm_sensors to work with xen-kernel?
I am able to monitor cpu temperature with regular kernel, but not in dom0/xen-kernel.

If this only installs one package, what about changing the make dependency in the package from pandoc to pandoc-bin?

Or does this have side effects?

zootboy commented on 2017-10-19 03:41

@ArthurBorsboom
You can install pandoc-bin in its place.
