  • This is a paravirtualized kernel built directly from sources without patches from (patches are no longer required to build domU kernels).
  • It is intended to run strictly as a domU, not as dom0. The tar file can be expanded directly into the image's root file system providing the kernel and modules.
  • The root device is /dev/xvda1 (update the image's /etc/fstab)
  • The console is hvc0 (update the image's /etc/securetty and /etc/inittab)

  • The image's grub.conf will look like this:
    title vmlinuz-
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz- console=hvc0 root=/dev/xvda1 ro
