The following packages need to be installed in order to build Xen with
VT support. Some Linux distributions do not provide these packages by
|The dev86 package provides an
assembler and linker for real mode 80x86 instructions. You need to have
this package installed in order to build the BIOS code which runs in
(virtual) real mode.
If the dev86 package is not available on the x86_64 distribution, you
can install the i386 version of it. The dev86 rpm package for various
distributions can be found at https://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=dev86&submit=Search

display, keyboard, and mouse are virtualized using the vncserver
library provided by this package. You can get the sources of
libvncserver from https://sourceforge.net/projects/libvncserver.
Build and install the sources on the build system to get the
libvncserver library. The 0.8pre version of libvncserver is currently
working well with Xen.
|Simple DirectMedia Layer
(SDL) is another way of virtualizing the unmodified guest console. It
provides an X window for the guest console.
If the SDL and SDL-devel packages are not installed by default on the build system, they can be obtained from https://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=SDL&submit=Search
