setting a kernel option in Debian Squeeze
I am runing Debian Squeeze 126.96.36.199 + Xen 4.0
I am supposed to set a kernel option called clocksource. The value to which clocksource will be set is pit. (as opposed to xen or tsc, etc.)
1. Does this option have to be set at install time?
2. or can it be set at boot time. (I believe it can).
If 2 is true, then where in Debian Squeeze would this clocksource option be set?
All directions say that this option should be set in 'grub.conf'. There is no grub.conf (Grub 2) in my Squeeze installation; only an /etc/default/grub. And in /etc/default/grub the options are prefaced in capitals, like so:
GRUB_CMDLINE_XEN="com1=9600,8n1 console=com1,vga noreboot"
Is /etc/default/grub the place to set kernel or boot options?
And if so, where in /etc/default/grub would a clocksource parameter be set?
