Fedora Xen List

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

Dom0 Kernel Status

Pasi Kärkkäinen forwarded[1] a pvops dom0 roadmap from Jeremy Fitzhardinge. Pasi also noted[2] "the 32bit PAE (i686) dom0 kernel crash problem has been fixed".

Daniel Berrange reported[3] "FYI, I have just installed a Fedora 12 x86_64 guest on a Fedora 11 x86_64 KVM host". "Once installed, I installed the Xen dom0 kernel from re-configured grub, and successfully rebooted into a Xen Dom0, and was able to create paravirt guests successfully. Most of the libvirt-TCK test suite passed, and the only bugs look trivial to solve in libvirt's Xen driver."

"So for that environment at least, the Dom0 kernels are looking pretty good when used with F12 and the libvirt Xen driver is still functioning reasonably well."

Boris Derzhavets recently wrote[4] [5] detailed instructions for creating a F11 dom0.
