  • Thread-topic: Recommended Windows PV drivers? (+ GPLPV issues)

Hi everyone,

What's the status of the various PV driver projects?  Which drivers would be recommended for end-users who just want PV drivers that work?  I've been something of a fan of the GPL PV drivers, but meadowcourt.org has been down for a while, and I don't think there have been recent updates.  There are the erstwhile Xenserver drivers, but my impression is that they're under development and not ready for actual use.

I would be entirely happy with the GPL PV drivers, but it seems like XenPCI isn't hiding all the emulated block devices --  I have one machine with 5 emulated disks, 4 ATA and 1 SCSI.  I still see one disk attached to ATA channel 1 and one disk on the SCSI controller.  Neither of these is the system disk.  XenVBD is attaching to all 5 disks, but some of the disks are (rightly) disabled because of signature collision.
