The work for Xen on the Arndale Development board is on his way. So don't expect to have a usable dom0 yet.

Building Xen and Linux

The bootloader provided with the Arndale does not let Xen boot in hypervisor mode, so we will use the u-boot provided by Linaro.

Follow the step on the Linaro wiki, to build and install u-boot.

To Build, get the source tree from the repo, which contain branches (last one is exynos5250-2013-03-22) with patches to get serial and other device working on the board.

 git clone --branch exynos5250-2013-03-22 git://xenbits.xen.org/people/aperard/xen-arm.git

Then, Build Xen on ARM.

Next step is to build Linux. You can get a tree from xenbits which is built on top of Linaro's tree [1].

and have those config options in .config:


Also, multi CPU does not work yet with Xen on ARM, so make sure to remove:
