How to make Xen easy to install?
Hi everyone!
I want to skip some of xen installation steps, and want to integrate 18 packages into ubuntu server...
Have you guys any idea about how do I combine those ".deb" packages in ubuntu repository or something?!

use a meta package
I have not worked much on Ubuntu, but I can suggest that you can create probably a meta package which has dependency on all the packages that you require to have installed. That way you dont have to combine anything and whenever some ones installs the metapackage then automatically all the packages are installed.

So, you mean by creating a metapackage, I can have all those packages installed in my machine?! right?

metapackage with no dependency should do it.
Yes, that is correct. The metapackage may/may not contain anything in itself but should have dependency on all the other packages.
