Re: [Xen-users] Benchmarking GPL PV Drivers for Windows between0.9.11-pre13 and

Thanks for putting that wiki page together for the dom0 kernels - it's something that has long been needed for pulling together information on those kernels.  I know it's always a chore for me to find info on how to get/build a dom0 kernel if I don't like the one that's included with a distribution.

Ok. Fedora 11 now has Xen 3.3.1 hypervisor and tools, and it will receive
3.4.1 shortly after it has been released upstream (rawhide already has 3.4.0).

There are also pv_ops dom0 kernel RPMs for testing:

Also you might be interested of the wiki page I made yesterday:

I've been successfully using Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 with pv_ops dom0 myself..
there are still some bugs and issues, some bigger changes still need to be
done to get accepted upstream, but it's already in a state where you can
definitely beta test it :)
