Re: [Xen-users] Advice on compiling Xen 4.1.2 on Debian 6.0.4 Kernel 3.1.12

Actually, I think I misspoke in a confusing way.

A patch was recently added upstream which broke Xen support in the Linux
kernel. It was unfortunately then backported to various stable (3.x.y)
trees. If you go back one version from the latest on any of those then
you should be ok.

v3.4-rc1 was buggy but AFAIK v3.4-rc2 is OK.

It seems that v3.3.1 and v3.2.14 both got the bad backport. However
3.3.0 and 3.2.13 should both be OK as far as I know. I expect that 3.3.2
and 3.2.15 will get the fix too.

Ahh ok i see. Casey DeLorme also mentioned that the Kernel 3.3.0 worked fine for him so i will probably try that one.

The last ".2" should be "-2" and is the Debian revision. The underlying
kernel would be 3.2.0. I don't think 3.2.0 has the bug mentioned above,
but it may well have had some other.

Wheezy right now has 3.2.12-2 which I think should be OK.

OK ya i had the version wrong before. When looking on Synaptic, the version i see is linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64 (assuming x64 of course). I don't see 3.2.12-2, and doesn't mean its not there, so not a big deal.
