1 XenSource xm-test 1.0 initrds
2 =============================
4 and
5 are initrds
6 suitable for use with Xen's xm-test regression testing suite. They has been
7 built and provided by XenSource, for the convenience of Xen users. xm-test
8 initrds may be mixed across minor xm-test versions, but not across major
9 versions; this initrd is suitable for all 1.0.x versions of xm-test (as
10 shipped with the Xen unstable tree for a short while between Xen 3.0.3 and
11 Xen 3.0.4).
13 In order to use one of these initrds, run "./autogen; ./configure; make
14 existing" inside the xm-test directory, and the appropriate initrd for your
15 architecture will be downloaded automatically. Alternatively, if you have
16 already downloaded that file, place it into the xm-test/ramdisk directory and
17 run the same command. In either case, can then be used as normal.
18 See xm-test/README for more details.
20 These initrds were built using the infrastructure provided by xm-test. Each
21 is a full guest operating system and filesystem, and as such includes a large
22 number of pieces of software. The source code for the majority of these are
23 included in full inside the file
24<INITRD>-buildroot.tar.bz2, where
25 <INITRD> is either initrd-1.0-i386 or initrd-1.0-powerpc as appropriate, or
26 alongside this file. Copyright statements and licences are contained therein.
27 The remaining source code is included in the Xen distribution, at
28 The configurations used
29 for BusyBox, uClibc, and Buildroot are available as
31<INITRD>-uClibc-config, and
32<INITRD>-buildroot-config respectively,
33 or alongside this file.
35 XenSource and the Xen contributors are grateful to the authors of these
36 software packages for their contributions to free and open-source software.
