1 XenSource xm-test 1.0 initrds
2 =============================
4 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/initrd-1.0-i386.img and
5 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/initrd-1.0-powerpc.img 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, runtest.sh 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 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/<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 http://www.xensource.com/xen/downloads/archives.html. The configurations used
29 for BusyBox, uClibc, and Buildroot are available as
30 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/<INITRD>-busybox-config,
31 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/<INITRD>-uClibc-config, and
32 http://xm-test.xensource.com/ramdisks/<INITRD>-buildroot-config respectively,
33 or alongside this file.
