Hi GizmoChicken,

Take a look at https://github.com/jamesbulpin/xsconsole - you should be able to 
clone this then type "make install-base" in the tree to install. Then run 
"xsconsole" from a shell.

It's got some basic fixes to make it work on Ubuntu as well as the XCP and 
XenServer appliances however YMMV with some of the features, e.g. where 
Ubuntu+XCP-XAPI doesn't have the same system-level capabilities as the XCP/XS 

Any feedback and patches would be welcomed.

Eventually we'll get this properly generalised and packaged but as Mike says 
there are other higher priority things ahead of it.
