1 Minimal OS
2 ----------
4 This shows some of the stuff that any guest OS will have to set up.
6 This includes:
8 * installing a virtual exception table
9 * handling virtual exceptions
10 * handling asynchronous events
11 * enabling/disabling async events
12 * parsing start_info struct at start-of-day
13 * registering virtual interrupt handlers (for timer interrupts)
14 * a simple page and memory allocator
15 * minimal libc support
16 * minimal Copy-on-Write support
17 * network, block, framebuffer support
18 * transparent access to FileSystem exports (see tools/fs-back)
20 - to build it just type make.
22 - to build it with TCP/IP support, download LWIP 1.3 source code and type
24 make LWIPDIR=/path/to/lwip/source
26 - to build it with much better libc support, see the stubdom/ directory
28 - to start it do the following in domain0 (assuming xend is running)
29 # xm create domain_config
31 This starts the kernel and prints out a bunch of stuff and then once every
32 second the system time.
34 If you have setup a disk in the config file (e.g.
35 disk = [ 'file:/tmp/foo,hda,r' ] ), it will loop reading it. If that disk is
36 writable (e.g. disk = [ 'file:/tmp/foo,hda,w' ] ), it will write data patterns
37 and re-read them.
39 If you have setup a network in the config file (e.g. vif = [''] ), it will
40 print incoming packets.
42 If you have setup a VFB in the config file (e.g. vfb = ['type=sdl'] ), it will
43 show a mouse with which you can draw color squares.
45 If you have compiled it with TCP/IP support, it will run a daytime server on
46 TCP port 13.
