Does BetterLinux run in a Xen Paravirtualized guest?

While this has not been tested internally, it has been reported to work:

  1. Install BetterLinux inside the guest.
  2. Copy the kernel to the host.
  3. Setup the paravirtualized guest to boot from that kernel.

Use Xen’s pygrub bootloader.

Note:            “Steal” time from the hypervisor was reported to potentially cause some problems.

Note:            The BetterLinux kernel has been built with CentOS 6 defaults, including CONFIG_PARAVIRT_GUEST=Y
