there are 4.0 pkgs in sid and sqeeze, you can use them for lenny with some deps from sid/sqeeze or recompile them...

I use the same pkgs for last ubuntu... have changed the deps for ubuntu

Thanks, I will try that.

I just cannot believe that there is so much trouble with xen and one
of the most common linux distributions (debian / ubuntu). The
"official" lenny-xen-packages (3.2.1) are total crap (try to get a
domu (bridged or via PCI pass thru) runnig as a router for more than 3
reboots) and the "source code howto" does not work properly either. I
really don't know, how many days I have wasted trying to get this
sh**t working. We are talking about two so called "stables" for God's

It would be absolutely fantastic if there were binary packages available
to set up a dom0 of the latest xen on debian and ubuntu. I don't know
