I need to install xen 3.1 sources. I try to install it on debian 7. When I try to make world I got this error:
numa.c: In function ‘acpi_parse_slit’:
numa.c:99:6: error: variable ‘localities’ set but not used [-Werror=unused-but-set-variable]
numa.c: In function ‘acpi_parse_srat’:
numa.c:152:26: error: variable ‘srat’ set but not used [-Werror=unused-but-set-variable]

I try to solve it by elmination -Werror in config file. I remove It in two file Config.Mk and minios.mk like this.
HOSTCC     = gcc
HOSTCFLAGS = -Wall -Werror -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer

but I still has the same problem and got same error?
anyone knows what should I do??

    Hi Hossein,

    Is there some reason you are using Xen 3.1 instead of something current (like the brand new 4.4 release)?

    I'm not sure how much testing has been done with the combination of an old Xen Project release and a new Debian release. Unless you have some very specific need to use 3.1 (which isn't even supported by the community anymore), you'd probably do much better with a more recent release.

    Current releases can be downloaded here:
