GNOME Live Xen virtual machine

I am pleased to add another image type to the live demos, check it out. The GNOME Live xen image, enables xdmcp for remote login. To try it out, here are some instructions, which assume you have a running Xen infrastructure already in place.

vi /etc/xen/gnome

bootloader = '/usr/bin/pygrub'
memory = 256
name = 'gnome'
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:00:03:45' ]
disk = [ 'tap:aio:/export/xen/gnome/foresight-2.18.1-x86.img,xvda,w' ]

If you are on the same network as your virtual machine, you can use broadcast to find your host.

Xephyr -host-cursor -terminate -broadcast :1 -screen 1024x768

Or, you can specify the IP or hostname to connect to.

Xephyr -host-cursor -terminate -query :1 -screen 1024x768
