Re: [Xen-devel] usb support?

Thanks Rolf , that's what I thought.

I'm mainly thinking of a usb keyboard and mouse - if that's working in dom0,
will I be able to use the console in the other domains, or do they need usb 
support too?

I don't see any mention of modules in the top-level makefile, so should I be 
descending into 
the kernel source directories and doing a usual 'make modules_install' in there?

Sorry for the newbie questions. It's because I'm a newbie :)

You could get a new lease on life -- if only you didn't need the first
and last month in advance.
