Re: [Xen-users] XEN Bridged Network and NAT

Hello Christophe,

I checked the debian backport and there is a new version of the xen-kernel and xen v4 availible. May I should switch to that version, provided that this version has the new pvops Dom0 kernel.
Can you tell me, how I can check this or may you can check this for me?
If the new kernel still use the old hack, it would be nice if you could provide the patch for the debian kernel.

Cheers, Michael

Hey Michael,

thanks for your reply. I'm using the standard xen kernel which comes
with debian lenny on dom0 and domu.
Its 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 #1 SMP in the moment.
I don't know if this version applies to the hacks you mentioned.

I just checked and I would assume that it does, since that kernel still
uses the "proto_data_valid"/"proto_csum_blank" hack in the networking

If I ported my patch to that version, would that help you? (I currently
have it for 2.6.19) I mean, you could add it to the debian source
package and rebuild the packages (which you would need to repeat every
time you update the kernel, unless at some point Debian switches to the
new pvops Dom0 kernels)
