My last blog post explained how to use lftp to maintain a local mirror to keep Slackware -stable up-to-date. The next logical step is to write a script to do that.

I started a thread on LQ seeking feedback on the method and the script and the result was a wonderful discussion with a useful script at the end.

Script to create a modified xen domU

Posted 02-04-2010 at 03:06 AM by zhjim

Just for me and all that can use it. Heres a script I wrote to create a domU filesystem from a directory. All values are taken from the xen config script for the domU and are later sed'ed.

if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then

        exit -1


#HOSTNAME=$(grep "name" $CONF)
