Xenoppix(Xen 3.0 CD size) is released


We released New Xenoppix (based on Xen3.0, CD size).
  Detail HP http://unit.aist.go.jp/itri/knoppix/xen/index-en.html
   670MB knoppix_v4.0.2CD_20050923_xen3.0-20060104+IPAFont_cdsize.iso

# New Features
  * Xen is updated to version 3.0. 
  * Host-Xenoppix(Knoppix on Domain0) boots Guest-Xenoppix(Knoppix on
    DomainU) with same kernel and same Root FileSystem.
  * Network is selectable; "Bridge" or "NAT". "Bridge" mode requires
    external DHCP. "NAT" mode is independent of external network, so
    we can boot DomainU without network connection.

# Usage 
  * Boot with "KNOPPIX/Xen3.0" at GRUB menu. 
  * GuestOS(DomainU) is booted from command line. The command name is
    "knoppixU". When "nat" option is added, the network is NAT
    mode. If there is no option, the network is "Bridge mode" and
    requires external DHCP service.
      Example: $ sudo knoppixU nat 
      CAUTION: The console shows boot sequence of GuestOS(DomainU). It
      includes many many Error messages (Examples: Couldnt get a file
      descriptor, mmap /dev/map: Resource temporally
      unavailable). Don't care please.
  * The boot of GuestOS takes about 5 minutes. :-) 
  * Xenoppix on DomainU boots with Full screen of "800x600". The
    Xenoppix on DomainU accepts "shutdown" command . After shutdown,
    it returns to Xenoppix on Domain0.

# Technical Detail 
  * Same Kernel(Linux2.6.13.6+Xen3.0) on Domain0 and DomainU. 
  * Same Root FileSystem(cloop file of CD-ROM) on Domain0 and DomainU. 
  * DomainU maps CD-ROM directly. 
      Description of domain setting file. disk = ['phy:/dev/cdrom,hdc,r'] 
  * Device Mapper is not used.
       The update of GuestOS is covered by"UNIONFS" of original KNOPPIX. Thanks Klaus. :-)
