2.6.11 contains lots of security fixes ...

This leads me to another question: Are different versions 
(2.0.X, 2.0-testing, unstable) of xen.gz, xen-aware kernels 
(linux/freebsd/netbsd) and the userland-tools for the 
domain0 somehow interoperable?

E.g. redhat has kernel-xenX-rpms in its fedora development 
tree i'd like to try, but they use xen-unstable. Creating the
domains using xen-2.0.4 fails. Is there a combination which 
runs xen-stable-domains and xen-unstable-domains?


there is no sig.
