Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xen for FC4-x86_64
Xen 2.x doesn't work in 64-bit, so there's no way that you could build a
working Xen 2.x on a FC4 x86_64. [Pedantica note: Ok so, you could, in
theory, build the source into a 32-bit image, but it wouldn't be able to
boot your Dom0 unless you alos have a separate 32-bit install somewhere
on the machine, as some tools and utilities that are needed in the
startup have to be installed as 32-bit images. For example, FC4 x86_64
would be deliverd with 64-bit version of Python, whilst you need a
32-bit Python in 32-bit.] 

For 64-bit Xen, you need the 3.0-testing or something like that.

As I understand it, Xen is not currently distributed by XenSource as
RPM's, but various Linux distributors have "ready to use" packages to
suit their particular distributions. As to RedHat doing this for FC4 is
up to RedHat, I suspect.
