I have a HVM guest with CentOs (i386) 5.6. My Dom0 has xen-3.4.3 (from source and some custom changes) running on the same kernel (2.6.18-238.12.1.el5).

I would like to know what should I do in the Dom0 and/or DomU to convert it to a PV-on-HVM domain so that I can have privcmd interface to do hypercalls.
I tried copying the xen libraries from my Dom0 to invoke my custom hypercall, but I get an error "PRIV-CMD interface: file or directory not found".

If it's easier to create a new PV-on-HVM than converting the HVM, I would prefer building PV-on-HVM from scratch.
