iap10@706 2 xen-clone
iap10@706 3
iap10@706 4 usage: xen-clone <bk_repository> <dest_dir> <orig_linux_dir>
iap10@706 5
iap10@706 6 This script can be used to 'bk clone' and build a xen and xenolinux image
iap10@706 7 from the master BK repository, either from a local copy, or from the
iap10@706 8 public repository bk://xen.bkbits.net/xeno.bk
iap10@706 9
iap10@706 10 In many circumstances, it can be invoked without any arguments and
iap10@706 11 just `does the right thing'.
iap10@706 12
iap10@706 13 The default dest_dir is 'xeno-clone', relative to the current directory.
iap10@706 14
iap10@706 15 To build xenolinux, the script needs a pristine copy of the equivalent
iap10@706 16 linux tree. The script looks in a couple of places on the local filesystem,
iap10@706 17 then tries a download from from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/
iap10@706 18
iap10@706 19 The script also tries a number of optional UCCL site-specific operations
iap10@706 20 that configure the test machine booting infrastructure to boot the
iap10@706 21 resultant image.
