Hi Everyone,

We currently run CentOS 5.8 (With the CentOS stock kernel) and use Xen 3.4.x (and associated packages) from GitCo. This has been a rock solid combination for us.

However, we need to think about the future, and wish to move to Xen 4.2. From my searching, I can't seem to find an easy way to install Xen 4.2. Are there any *trustworthy* third party repos out there that can provide Xen 4.2.x as well as a good, regularly updated solid kernel that would work on CentOS6?

Are you doing a Dist upgrade at the same time as you bump up Xen hypervisor verisons?  (I assume you mean 4.1.x, rather than 4.2 which doesn't exist except in unstable at the moment.)
Yes, but only minor releases so we stay within 5.x
I do indeed mean 4.1.x :)

http://www.gitco.de/repo/ offers XEN 4.1 rpms for CentOS 5.x, so that may suit your needs adequately.
Yes, but Xen 4.1.x doesn't work very well with the stock RHEL5 kernel
