Description James Ralston 2009-11-27 21:32:31 UTC
According to:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KVM_Huge_Page_Backed_Memory

...I should create /dev/hugepages and mounts hugetlbfs on it.  But this is a hack. There needs to be some automatic way to ensure that /dev/hugepages exists and is mounted; I shouldn't have to do it manually.

This is with libvirt-0.7.1-15.fc12.

patch to make /sbin/start_udev mkdir /dev/hugepages

The attached patch makes /sbin/start_udev mkdir /dev/hugepages, the same way it creates other subdirectories in /dev that are mount targets.

With this patch, the following line in /etc/fstab will do the trick:

hugetlbfs       /dev/hugepages  hugetlbfs defaults      0 0
