Dom0is the initial virtual machine launched by Xen on boot. This is the most privileged guest and allows Xen administration. We chose to install Dom0 as a classical Debian 7.9.0.
Xen compilation asks for some dependencies:
apt-get build-dep xen
Once the dependencies are installed, compiling and installing Xen should be straightforward:
make install -j4 && update-grub
Reboot Dom0 and choose the right entry in grub. In order to use the xl command, the linker’s path must be adjusted. Also, the xencommons service needs to run:
echo "/usr/lib64" >> /etc/ld.so.conf insserv xencommons service xencommons start
