I am trying to setup Xen to use "PV on HVM". For this, I did the following.

(1) I followed the tutorial at http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/Fedora13Xen4Tutorial to setup Xen4.0.1 on Fedora13. I am able to run virt-manager and create a Fedora 13 guest.
(2) I followed the tutorial at http://bderzhavets.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/pv-on-hvm-at-xen-4-0-on-top-of-fedora-13/ to use PV on HVM on Xen-4.0.1. I also verified that the Xen-4.0.1 I have is patched as per this tutorial.

Now, after doing all this, how can I use PV on HVM with the help of virt-manager. Do I need to patch virt-manager to see the option "PV on HVM" in the device model menu of virt-manager. If not virt-manager, how can I use command line for using PV on HVM.

Thanks to the authors of the tutorials. They are very useful and informative for the Xen installation.

Thanks & Regards,
