Re: [Fedora-xen] Updating out-of-date Fedora XenPvopsDom0 wiki page



Hi,
	Thanks for poking at this - I've updated the page to remove any
tracking of the in-progress kernel support, since it's all better
tracked elsewhere now.

	My advice to anyone wanting to help this along is to build and test
Jeremy's work and iron out any issues with Fedora's xen userland running
on it.

	Apart from the upstream kernel work, we also need to make sure that the
hypervisor can boot bzImage kernels. Currently only the libxc DomU
domain builder has bzImage support. The issue with Dom0 is the
hypervisor currently doesn't gunzip the vmlinuz kernel ... it's actually
grub that does that but it doesn't make sense for grub to gunzip bzImage
kernels.

	The only Fedora specific piece remaining is to add a way for
new-kernel-pkg to know that it should set up grub.conf with xen.gz.

Thanks,
Mark.
