Pfsense Xenserver Pv with xentools



  • Hello,

    I am reather new to freebsd, the first freebsd based machine that I worked with was pfsense. This could be a stupid questions, but I need an answer. How could I get a download link for the curent kernel sources in the 2.0 snapshots.

    I've worked with linux, in linux it is simple to download the kernel sources ex(gentoo): emerge kernel sources , does freebsd support something like this?

    I am trying to compile the curent kernel with xen support, becouse from kernel 2.6.32(I think) avery newer kernel(from kernel.org) has xen support buildin.

    I've seen a thread on citrix forum, with people that managed to get a working freebsd 8.0 macheen with pv kernel. Why not do a Pfsense xen virtual appliance?

    Thank you!



  • Doesn't anyone have any ideea?



  • As I can see sysinstall is not present and as I do not now the exact version of freebsd, or if the original system has been patched or not, I can't go forward. can someone please provide the contents of the /usr/src folder in the present 2.0 release?

    There are no FreeBSD sources or compilation tools on the firewall itself.

    If you want to setup a build environment to make custom images, see here: http://devwiki.pfsense.org/DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso
