[Xen-users] XenU boot loader?


I'm wondering is there any kind of bootloader for XenU?

Synchronising kernel bits between that which is configured for a particular guest on xen0 and the guest itself is tedious and error-prone.

It'd be handy if there was some kind of 2stage boot process so as reduce this inter-dependence.

It's particularly problematic with Linux guests, which typically use lots of modules. Misconfiguration, especially where the guest is missing the modules, can result in things like firewalling on a guest failing to start, etc.

Would it be useful to have a XenU bootloader??
