Opensuse 11.2 has Xen 3.4.1.

If you only have problems with FreeBSD, I actually suggest you start
with Centos + Xen 3.4.2 from http://www.gitco.de/repo/

I had some issues with opensolaris domU and stock RH/Centos xen, and
it works fine using updated Xen version. Perhaps it's the same thing
for FreeBSD. This approach (only update Xen) has the advantage that
you still get Redhat's kernel bugfixes on their rock-stable



Hi Fajar,

This sounds like a good option. What do I have to do at that link? Do I install all those RPMs? Or just one of them? And do I just leave the kernel alone?
