How to get started

By far the easiest way to get started with LING is to use prebuilt binaries. Just grab the latest LING binary distribution archive here. The archive contains the railing utility. Copy railing to your home directory or somewhere on your PATH. To produce a Xen image for your project run:

railing image

This should create both the Xen image file named [project-name].img and the domain configuration file named domain_config. Now you can boot a Xen domain using:

xl create -c domain_config

Run railing without parameters to get help.

Building from sources

To build LING from sources you need to clone this repository and follow the instructions in the file.

git clone

Beware that building LING from sources is not for faint-hearted.
