Re: [Xen-users] 2.6.32 Kernel Debian


Well : who fix the security problems from the 2.6.18 ? And it doesn't boot at all on modern hardware.

Who use the dom0 kernel from lenny on production ? Me, at least on some simple setup, and the pv_ops kernel on others setup.
If my actual pv_ops kernel is part of Squeeze, I really really be happy to don't have to maintain it anymore.

The pv_ops dom0 kernel is the futur of Xen, so it's logic that Debian choose it for his *future* version.

ÂI REALLY do not understand why the Debian Xen Team just don't pack the Linux from http://xen.org for Squeeze dom0, if there are no stable options available out there.

ÂWhat is the point in make a hard work to get a unstable system? As the Lenny (dom0) and the Hardy (dom0), for example?!? No one actually are using it!

ÂI never use in a production environment, the Xen packaged from some distribution. They always have a bug here and there... Then I am forced to manually compile Xen and Linux from xen.org and all my problems go away as magic!

ÂAnd if Debian Squeeze works seamlessly with the Xen and the Linux, I believe that the maintainers of the Xen in the Debian SHOULD only pack the sources from xen.org WITHOUT any significant modifications. Of course, only when you want a dom0.

ÂSome will say that the Linux is prehistoric but, then why not use the same kernel used in the project XCP, the kernel- for the Squeeze? It is stable too and much more recent than the 2.6.18!

i'm not sure, it rumours it will be a pv_ops kernel. But till now i've found
no definite information about that.

Another info about the kernel:
