words of wisdom from a systems engineer

Installing Xen 4 on Fedora 13

Installing Xen can be a bit of a challenge for a beginner and it’s made especially difficult by distribution vendors who aren’t eager to include it in their current releases. I certainly don’t blame the distribution vendors for omitting it; the code to support Xen’s privileged domain isn’t currently in upstream kernels.

However, Pasi Kärkkäinen has written a detailed walkthrough about how to get Xen 4 running on Fedora 13. Although there are quite a few steps involved, it’s worked well for me so far.
