Yes I know its pretty old version of fedora, the reason I choose older version is; snowflock as you mentioned its an old package and there some dependencies while installing it and I thought choosing the latest version of fedora would cause more issues. However I don't think there is a problem with fedora;
The snowflock rpm will install a complete set of Xen userland tools, in addition to the hypervisor and domain 0 kernel, and it will change the /boot/grub/menu.lst.
it is as follows after installation:
<<<<<<<<<<<<< /boot/grub/menu.lst >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
title SnowFlock Xen 3.0.3 / Linux (18.104.22.168-xen)
kernel /xen-3.0.3-0.gz console=vga
module /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
title Fedora (126.96.36.199-117.fc10.i686)
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=aa42f034-8d19-43d4-8eb5-bbbdc3ff2b62 rhgb quiet
I formatted the drive with ext2 and re installed the fedora, but due to some strange reasons I could still see the same error "mount: error mounting/dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: " though I have changed the file system to ext2. I guess the Xen 3.0.3 provided by the snowflock is by deafult searching for ext3, do you have any solution to this ?
yes I did tried on Centos before this, but there was some library dependency issues so could not install snowflock successfully.
Thanks for ur responses John, if you could lead me to a solution that would be great!!
I came to know that, UofT released SnowFlock code is ancient, not maintained and probably not stable enough bolt an additional system on top. (It was a research prototype after all)(After leaving UofT, the authors of SnowFlock formed a startup based on the SnowFlock technology (http://gridcentric.com))
So I'm no longer intended to use snowflock for my experiments.
