Fedora Xen List

This section contains the discussion happening on the fedora-xen list.

No Xen dom0 in Fedora 12 Hopefully 13

Zhang Enming was disappointed[1] to learn the support for hosting Xen guests, dropped in Fedora 9, is still not present in Fedora 12.

Zhang referenced numerous videos documenting success with Xen dom0 on Fedora 11. While there are experimental patches which may be applied[2] to the kernel to enable support for dom0, they are not yet in the upstream kernel which forms the basis the Fedora kernel package.

It was decided[3] two years ago this month that Fedora "simply cannot spend more time forward porting Xen kernels" and "the plan is to re-focus 100% of all Xen kernel efforts onto paravirt_ops." See FWN#137.[4]
