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