[Debian-User] Xen and a local mirror or a R/W DVD
I really like the idea passed on to me of getting the entire 14 disk
ETCH (older and therefore stable) distribution on a R/W DVD where the
first DVD contains the installer. Apparently, this approach using the
appropriate package management calls will allow that same R/W DVD to be
automatically updated. Another person advocating this approach
indicated that I could use the ISO files instead of creating a mirror of
the POOL (directory having the latests release, testing, and others)
packages.However, I like the idea but it may have a flaw which I detail
further on near the bottom.
Since I don't have my high speed Internet connection yet (could be
months yet) perhaps I could pay someone to construct and mail me such a
package. Yes, I will pay but whoever wants to do this needs to commit
to a fixed shipping fee because this sounds like a custom approach not
available normally. Note also, that such an effort should be in US
dollars -- I am out here in the cold in a place called Northern Alberta,
Canada some 63 miles NE of the capital city of Edmonton, Alberta.
Failing that, I may have to find someone in the LUG in Edmonton that
would do this task. But this is not easily arranged unless someone
knows a specific person with the suitable knowledge, time, and interest
to do this on my behalf.
Note: We are talking about an older and therefore stable ETCH
distribution consisting of the entire set (yes I know I only need the
first few CDs) but I want it all -- all 14 or so and on DVDs and these
DVD's must be both READ and WRITE. When I get the high speed interface
then I can download the updates myself perhaps using the ISO images but
for now the proposed idea is two use the one set of R/W DVDs that can
provide the initial installation and also allow for the periodic
upgrade. I'm not sure that the "upgrade" suggestion will work because to
work would involve (for just one package) a possible disturbance in one
complete DVD and maybe two depending upon the location of the package
and the free space on the DVDs.
Some comments on this would be appreciated.
Nevertheless, I will still be going ahead with my Local LAN POOL archive
once I have the high speed interface.
Xen is good for you.
Even Microsoft likes Xen.
Leading Chip manufacturers like Xen.
Some CPUs have a hardware interface supposedly friendly to Xen.and
