How to Install Slackware Linux to a DomainU

In domain-0:

Download slackware 10.2 install CD iso 1 and 2 (if you don't have the actual CDs):

Download slackware system builder for UML from:

untar it, it create a „mkuml-2004.07.17“ directory

go to this directory and create a new directory called slackware-current:

cd mkuml-2004.07.17 mkdir slackware-current mount the install cd's or iso'es and copy everything to slackware-current:

mount -o loop slackware-10.2-install-d1.iso /mnt #or mount the cdrom! cp -rp /mnt/* slackware-current/ umount /mnt mount -o loop slackware-10.2-install-d2.iso /mnt \cp -rp /mnt/* slackware-current/ umount /mnt The following step only applys if you use fedora Core as domain-0:

edit search for „mke2fs -F -j root_fs“ change it to „mke2fs -F -j -O ^resize_inode root_fs“ Now, run

./ slackvm It will prompt you for network configuration and root password.

After installation finish, you will have a slackware filesystem image, it's under the directory slackvm.

cd slackvm mount –o loop root_fs /mnt edit /mnt/etc/inittab to comment out tty0 and uncomment tty1 (you can uncomment tty2-6 if you like) edit /mnt/etc/fstab, such as this:

/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1 none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0

You may also want to create a empty file modules.dep in /mnt/lib/modules/your_domU_kernel to get rid of some boot warnings. umount /mnt

There you go, create your domU config file and „xm create“ it and enjoy your new shining slackware domU!
