    ARCH as a Guest.


    I'm attempting to run Arch Linux as a guest/domu on my Xen Dom0. When I try to install Arch doesn't see any hardrives.. though I have a virtual hard disk mounted to the guest. Any one had this problem or know how I might get Arch Linux to see my vbd?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Why not use KVM or VirtualBox for you VM needs? Xen is pretty much deprecated these days, especially since a lot of hardware drivers are not supported on it. I stopped using xen-enabled kernels about 4 years ago because of this issue.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    I've not had many issues at all using xen and its a very powerful enterprise grade hypervisor. Citrix uses xen in xen server oracle uses it in oracle vm which is still very much alive. I also had a Xen Cloud Platform appliance before I moved to fedora+xen.

    Maybe I'm just out of the loop I'll look into it but I didn't know Xen was deprecated. Amazon uses it for their cloud as well.

    All and all not calling you out just need to do some research now.. thanks for calling this to my attention.
