Xen and the art of open source hacking

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 10:11 AM

I’ve been doing some Xen work for the last few days in Watson. The end
result, except for a much better understanding of the Xen source code,
is two patches. The first is fairly trivial but fixes a problem I ran
into, the second fixes a bunch of latent buglets.

I’m going to continue working with Xen in the upcoming weeks,
and have some interesting project ideas. All will be disclosed in due


  1. The link to the patches are 404
    Looks like you indeed had a good time.

  2. Whenver I use Xen, I’m not dissapointed. I still like User Mode Linux though for it’s ease of use, but it sure can get bogged down at times.
    I read a neat paper on running Xen on top of OpenMosix, but I can’t seem to find it now :/
    I’ll post my copy of it online when I get home.
