Re: [Xen-devel] After switching from "xm" to "xl" toolstack, can't get Guest networking to work.

Hi Jim.

Thanks for chiming in.

It's been a big challenge finding anything that IS "an authoritative
resource on functionality" for Xen in Opensuse.

Where is the Opensuse-specific and Up-to-Date Xen documentation?  I
guess we cant rely on xen.org docs for Opensuse's Xen?  Is it not really
closely tied to the xen-devel project then?

Okay, so that looks like the answer here.  At the moment, it doesn't
work on Opensuse.  Thanks for verifying you can reproduce it and looking
into it more.

That leaves me back at my earlier question -- What are good docs for Xen
on Opensuse?  I've wasted a lot of time - mine and other people's -
doing what I was told (RTFM!) just to find out that 'real' Xen manual is
the wrong one.
