Re: [MirageOS-devel] Which version of Xen for MirageOS?

Thanks a lot!
Wait! If I understand well enough your own setup, I don't need to run on bare metal!
I missed the point, and apologize about that.

If I recap:
 - start a VirtualBox VM with a Linux distrib (presumably 64 bits)
 - install Xen 4.2 inside that VM, so I guess in your case your Ubuntu 13.04 is running within your Dom0
 - run MirageOS inside a Xen VM
   - which works because it's using the PV approach, I guess
 - I won't be able to run a native Linux distrib in a DomU... but I don't care.

If that works, you saved my day! No need for any Intel-VT or AMD-SVM support!
Thanks again

no problem, this is the right place :)

cool!  hopefully the install and hello-world instructions are iterating towards being mostly correct then :)  (assuming you used those?)

as i understand it, either should work -- personally i experiment using Xen 4.2 on ubuntu 13.04 (inside a Virtualbox VM on my mac)...  i'd say give 4.0 a try (others have more experience Xen on the list than me though).
