xen-update-image is a simple script which allows you to update a Xen image of Debian which has been created with xen-create-image. It does this by mounting the image inside a temporary directory then running: apt-get update apt-get upgrade NOTE If the image is already running within Xen this will cause corruption otherwise it will allow you to update your image without booting it. EXAMPLES
The following assumes there are two images which are not currently running. The images are called 'test.my.flat', and 'x11.my.flat'. Updating both images can be accomplished by executing: xen-update-images --dir=/home/xen test.my.flat x11.my.flat AUTHORS
