Xenner does not support pygrub bootloader
Last modified: 2008-04-11 11:41:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Paravirt xen guests need to boot from a kernel/initrd. This works fine for the
initial install, but post-install it is neccessary to boot from the
kernel/initrd inside the guest. This requires use of pygrub.
Xenner does not support invoking pygrub.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
pygrub is supported, it is invoked automatically when started without -kernel
option. It isn't documented though (which should be fixed, so I leave that one
open as reminder to update the docs).
We should probably add an explicit command line param
Libvirt's XML format allows us to specify an arbitrary path to a bootloader, and
I thus was planning to add a '-bootloader' flag to qemu-dm to support Xennite,
so we might as well keep Xenner consistent in this regard & do the same.
-bootloader arg sounds very useful. I'll implement that.
