Hi all,

Has any one run these rpms?

If so, are they reliable for a production box?

I'm pretty conservative and usually stick with the vendor distros,  etc... but I may be missing out on some enhancements as the current  shipped version with Centos/RHEL is Xen 3.0.3.

Don't believe everything RedHat puts in an rpm version string.
The RedHat RPM says Xen 3.0.3 but inside it is really a significantly-
modified xen 3.1.2. at least in version 5 update 2.
That said, I have never tried the 3.3 rpms from gitco.
Would also be interested to know anyone who has.

EVERYONE's using them! I use them in production now and have had no problems that I could attribute to the rpms themselves. Note, that I only use the x86_64 rpms.

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use Windows."
Now they have two problems.
