Don't know. I definitely would like to see it integrated. I haven't been able to follow the list too well the last weeks, so I'm not aware of the latest discussion status on this. > I much > prefer it over pygrub as it will read from a filesystem (vs partitions) > and relies on the host FS support (so JFS/XFS are no problem).

(1) is a feature and it's the reason why we probably will have pygrub coexist with domUloader :-( (2) we could help, by using fdisk -l and losetup rather than kpartx if the latter is missing; though fdisk -l would limit the supported partition tables to DOS ones. > but is work > being done to make sure that domUloader does not die as a project? Well, domUloader is shipped and used by Novell. I guess I should set up a project page somewhere in case we can't get it included in Xen. Regards, -- Kurt Garloff, Head Architect Linux, Novell Inc.
