1 XenSource xm-test 0.7 initrd.img
2 ================================
4 initrd-0.7.img is an initrd suitable for use with Xen's xm-test regression
5 testing suite. It has been built and provided by XenSource, for the
6 convenience of Xen users. xm-test initrds may be mixed across minor xm-test
7 versions, but not across major versions; this initrd is suitable for all 0.7.x
8 versions of xm-test (as shipped with Xen 3.0.x).
10 In order to use this initrd, run "./autogen; ./configure; make existing"
11 inside the xm-test directory, and the initrd will be downloaded automatically.
12 Alternatively, if you have already downloaded this file, place it into the
13 xm-test/ramdisk directory and run the same command. In either case,
14 runtest.sh can then be used as normal. See xm-test/README for more details.
16 This initrd was built using the infrastructure provided by xm-test. It is a
17 full guest operating system and filesystem, and as such includes a large
18 number of pieces of software. The source code for the majority of these are
19 included in full inside the file
20 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/initrd.0.7.img-buildroot.tar.bz2, or
21 alongside this file. Copyright statements and licences are contained therein.
22 The remaining source code is included in the Xen distribution, at
23 http://www.xensource.com/xen/downloads/archives.html. The configuration used
24 for BusyBox is available as
25 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/initrd-0.7-busybox-config, or alongside
26 this file.
