Cool How can I install xen-3.4.1 binary?


I'm running Ununtu 9.04 and trying to install xen-3.4.1 binary, then configure grub bootloader and start the necessary services at start up so I can create virtual machines. Can someone drop me a line?

I installed xen-3.4.1, uncompressed it to a new directory called xen, changed directory to /home/yuri/xen/xen-3.4.1 and in the terminal ran $ sh ./install.sh some stuff downloaded and I think started installing but when i did $ sudo update-grub and looked in /boot/grub/menu.lst there was no info for Ubuntu, kernel 2.6-xen0. and I don't think that xen-3.4.1 installed at all. Can you help me out with how to install this?

there is a problem with
