[Xen-devel] Re: Xen dom0 kernels / wiki page?
The pv_ops dom0 does indeed seem not yet ready for general use. The fact we
made it the default kernel to build in xen-unstable.hg was not to suggest
that it was however, but to get more exposure and testing from the developer
>From a user point of view, some documentation would be great, no doubt. The
2.6.18 tree is still available (and still the default kernel for 3.4 branch
and earlier). Then there are the 2.6.27 trees based on the suse port (e.g.,
xenbits/XCI, which could potentially be pulled out of the XCI project and
made a first-class maintenance tree in its own right). And Andrew's 2.6.29
If someone wants to actively maintain a 2.6.29+ tree based on the 'suse
port' / 'classic Xen patches' and wants xenbits space for that reason, we'd
be happy to oblige.
