Re: [fedora-virt] how to active XEN on Fedora 12

       I would forward this statement  to Jeremy Fitzhardinge ;)

In fact, i  believe xenified or pvops kernel is required to support Dom0 .
1. Pvops 2.6.31.6 kernel may be built via Jeremy's  Git Repo or attempt to install prebuilt
  rpms by Michael Young ( they never worked for me)

Checkout and build pvops kernel:-

# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git linux-2.6-xen
# cd linux-2.6-xen
# make menuconfig ( setup Xen Dom0 support)
# make -j(x)(number_of_kernels)
# make modules_install install

2. OpenSuse rebased patches (Andy Lyon) work pretty good with 2.6.31.8
and  allow to build xenified aka Suse kernel. It's coming from Jan Beulich.
View:-
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.xen.user/52982

But, in both cases clear understanding of actions in "make menuconfig" ( different for pvops kernel
and xenified kernel ) is a must.

Alternatively, try building your kernel with Xen from upstream
sources
