spec of xen-hypervisor



  • Good day.

    I'm trying to apply that patch https://lists.gt.net/xen/devel/432779 to xen-hypervisor, and at first looking for it's spec to rebuild.

    Could you please point me out where is the current one lying? I've found one at github.com/xcp-ng/xcp/ , but it is 4.7.4-4.1 , and updates from https://updates.xcp-ng.org/7.4/ got me xen-hypervisor-4.7.5-4.4.x86_64 and also suggests xen-hypervisor-4.7.5-5.2.x86_64 .

    Hi.

    Most parts of the process of building updates are still manual at the moment and we still don't store and publish the source RPMs that match the published RPMs (well, the need you just expressed should raise the priority for that!).

    I don't know what this package was built from and there's no changelog but I'll try to find the relevant information. There is a chance that the answer would have to wait for wednesday though.



  • Oh, Wednesday would be nice (it is not urgent in any way).

    However, I should note, that it is possibly not only for that my need: it could be a GPL violation to publish rpms from a modified .spec without publishing .spec.

    Yeah, work on XCP-ng has been made up to now with very limited resources so we can easily find things that are not ok in this regard. Not very good from a community open-source fork, is it? But we'll fix that rather quickly now that they hired someone (me) full time 🙂

    @tzirechnoy You should be able to apply the patch and rebuild hypervisor yourself from DDK.

    A DDK is special VM offered by Citrix (for now...) in which all the current XCP-ng source packages can be patched and rebuilt.



  • I suspect, that a default build in DDK would lead to more or less xenserver binaries, not xcp-ng, isn't it?


  • XCP-ng Team

    To my knowledge (final confirmation on wednesday 🙂 ), xcp-ng's xen packages come from the same source packages as XenServer's, with only a change to remove trademarked material (they put a trademarked Citrix logo in the RPM).

    @tzirechnoy Thats ok as it would work for you. And as @stormi mentioned, there is no difference in binaries except the ones he mentioned. So you would not see any execution differences.
