Ubuntu intrepid Xen DomU made easy

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

I made this script for bootstrapping and “Xenifying” an ubuntu easily. You will have a working ubuntu domU in 30 seconds flat with a fast mirror.

Root password will always be set to ‘password’. Hostname will be ubuntu , loopback interface will be set up. The sole argument is either a filename or a block device to install the distribution onto. See the top of the script for more configurable options. Notibly the mirror option.

The only prerequisite is that you have (a recent)debootstrap installed. Its available for nearly every distro these days.

Remember that i think you will need Xen 3.3 to boot an ubuntu intrepid DomU.
