after looking into uml, and the abilities it provides, i was excited to see
that it actually delivers what it promises, since it solved me a lot of
problems. but , since uml is a work in progress, keeping with latest version
and releases is not easy, unless you actually enjoy installing software over
and over from source, so i setup myself to create an easy to use rpm
packages for the components of uml, based on a RedHat system.
Here is the documentation and the actuall product of my work :
in short, there is directions on how to compile a skas3-enabled kernel; a
uml kernel, split in 2 : the package that is installed into the uml itlesf,
containing the /boot files and the kernel modules, and a package that
contains the corresponding "linux" binary, and is to be installed on the
host. Another package is the uml_utilities package, without the "linux"
binary. on the uml site, the last 2 (3 if you include the tarballs of kernel
modules, included in the package on uml site) are combined into one package,
this makes it harder to update the kernel version without updating the
tools - i believe splitting them is the right thing.
i hope that this will help people to setup their own systems, and i look
forward for comments and suggestions, since this is work in progress.
