Noob XEN build question?
Hi, I'm building Xen 4.2.2 for my 12.04.2 server. Have it working kinda and have debugged a ./configure parameter to override the make process looking to put some files into a none existent /usr/lib64 directory.
I use EFI boot at present and I've read around including the manual here http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/4.2-testing/misc/efi.html where it says to build a xen.efi file to use in replace of /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi. From my reading this is so that Xen can handle EFI systems, it being the first thing that needs to load.
I need to pass in a EFI_VENDOR parameter so that the build process knows where to put the resulting xen.efi file but I can't fathom where to specify this properly. I've found this thread https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/x...l&comments=all and a few others that note about this parameter but nothing that describes the intended build steps needed.
Do I just edit the makefile and define this variable at the top? Would appreciate any pointers.
