Hey Xen list,

Reading the latest announce-list mail (link below), Ian Pratt has
prepared some debian packages available at:

Everything looks nice.. but try clicking on one of the links like:

Seems there may be some permission problems.  Is there someplace else I
can get these packages?  I'd prefer to use these then go with the
unpackaged binary install that just drops bits on my system; Though I
must say it certainly is easy.

My 2.0.5 packages from Debian/experimental seem to boot into an "Out of
Memory" situation in the middle of /etc/rcS.d/ (with nearly everything,
including mounts/nfs disabled) where as the 2.0.6 seems to boot just
fine.  Not sure if it is a specific problem to 2.0.5, or just the set of
libraries/permutation provided by the xen/experimental packages on my
Sarge box.  In any event, once I dumped the manual binary install bits
from the install tarball overtop, my previous xen0 kernels,  built with
xen-kernel-patch 2.0.5/2.6.10 the Debian way, worked fine.

For anyone in doubt of their Xen config, the XenoLive 2.0.6 cd is a
great 'test', and cast away any doubt that my config was responsible for
the "Out of Memory" situation.

I'd like to get back to packages an purge the manual bits asap.

Thanks to Adam Heath and Ian Pratt for Debianization of this great tool.
