Installing CentOS 5.6 on Debian Xen Host

So I was trying to setup a SolusVM install on my Debian Lenny Xen machine. SolusVM requires CentOS 5.6 so I decided to do what most people have been doing online.

xen-create-image --hostname=bob.bob.ca--ip=192.168.22.4 --gateway=192.168.22.254 --netmask=255.255.255.0 --dist=centos-5 --install-method=rinse --arch=i386 --pass --force

At which point more errors popped up. Specifically…

rinse /usr/bin/python: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.4.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I looked into the issue further and it looks like python-libs is missing from “/etc/rinse/centos-5.packages”. Added it and re-built the VM and all is swell.

After doing some reasearch I stumbled upon the following patch.

Hard times for hard drives: US may ban popular imports

This could be a damaging blow to quite a few companies within the United States. For instance, take a dedicated server hosting company that relies on one of many hardware vendors like Dell or HP (Hewlett-Packard). Its possible that said vendor will have stock pile of hard drives. Put lets put this into perspective. If you read the entire article you will see a similar situation that ended with Broadcom filing a complaint against Qualcomm. The International Trade Commission banned Qualcomm from shipping any new chips and hardware into the United Sates, and any chips that were already being shipped to the United States could continue. The ban lasted for 45 days, until an appeal by Qualcomm was successful and then the ban was lifted.
