[Xen-users] Re: Virtualization Test Day for F16 and Xen


What Xen implementation is considered "supported" for FC16 DomU? I'm asking because on "Xen implementation" we were testing yesterday FC16 DomU installation failed compared to FC15 DomU success on the very same Dom0. Are failures like we've encountered candidates for bugreports?

Is there a place (wikipage, bugzilla keyword, etc.) to collect Fedora 16 Xen issues?

So, there's a meta-point here: we currently 'require' Beta releases to
boot as guests on Xen hosts:

"The release must boot successfully as a virtual guest in a situation
where the virtual host is running a supported Xen implementation"

I really don't have much knowledge of Xen and haven't followed this
discussion closely, but do any currently-known bugs prevent this? If so,
please flag them up so they can be considered as Beta blockers...thanks!
