Re: [Xen-users] Preferred DISTRO

The documentation for CentOS 5 shows a set of borders between architecture host and guest at this link: http://centos.org/docs/5/html/5.2/Virtualization/chap-Virtualization-Compatibility_of_host_and_guest_combinations.html

So who is right?

What is the preferred distribution to install Xen hypervisor? Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu?

Installing a distribution on x86_64 Xen hypervisor (dom0), you can install a PV guest with x86 architecture (domU), not HVM?

Got around a dozen dom0s running Centos 5 x86_64 with Xen 3.4.2 from gitco.de/repo/. No problems till now.
And yes, you can use 32bit domUs on 64bit dom0 (even in paravirt mode, each domU can have its own kernel).
