Issues with building Xen from source

Folks, I am back working on Xen and once again, I am bumping into issues getting xen up and running on various distros. I will enumerate some of the issues that I am facing in this blog as I go along :

  • Ubuntu python is weird. The site.py library does not import modules from /usr/lib/pythonx.y/site-packages ! Instead it imports from /usr/lib/pythonx.y/dist-packages ! Check the site.py module and you can see it yourself! The workaround is to create a symlink or install custom packages in /home/localuser/.local/lib/pythonx.y/site-packages and have site.ENABLE_USER_SITE set to True.
