Re: [Xen-users] default dom0 memory size is very large

You need to modify /boot/grub/menu.lst (for dom0) and add 'dom0_mem=512000 ' (or whatever amount of memory you want to give dom0). Then reboot it.

I am running xen (changeset 9029 on SLES10 beta 6) on x86_64 with 8 procs and 8 GB memory. When the system boots, xm list and xentop show that dom0 is given almost all of the 8 GB of memory, leaving only 136 MB free.
Has anyone else encountered this?  Shouldn't the default memory size be small 
to allow the creation of multiple domU's?
