Re: [Xen-devel] Building Xen tools

IMHO This is not a question about Xen development, but about using Xen,
so redirecting to the user list.

What problems?

It is trying to say "These instructions use Ubuntu Raring so if you
follow them exactly then you would also need to use Ubuntu Raring in
your dom0".

You could also use the instructions as an example but substitute your
own distro to match your own dom0 environment, but you'd then have to be
able to handle the subtle differences between distros.

No. That statement refers only to the userspace environment (i.e. glibc
version, compiler version, other libraries etc). The compile time and
runtime kernel can be independent (and if cross compiling this must
obviously be the case).
