Re: Kernel using LZMA compression



Thanks. But don't understand. What has LZMA todo with Xen?

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=515831

The executive summary is: Xen does not let a kernel boot itself,
because mimicking bare hardware is too tedious (and pointless.)
Instead, Xen instantiates an instance of a kernel into the Xen
environment.  To do this instantiation, Xen does its own decom-
pression, so Xen must know everything about the compression.
