I have taken the hypervisor using "wget

Mr. Pasi,

I think you might need to upgrade that source RPM. I remember Intel folks 
a patch for XSAVE and it broke some machines. There was a workaround, but I 
don't remember
the details (post vacation amnesia :-).


That's actually just a copy of the official Fedora src.rpm :)

Michael: Do you feel comfortable with adding some bugfix patches
from xen-4.0-testing.hg to fedora xen-4.0.1-2 rpms?

I think at least earlier Fedora xen rpms had (extra) patches applied to fix 

I don't have a problem with adding hand-picked patches to the offical Fedora rpms, if I know which ones they are. As it happens I was about to do a build with one or two IRQ fixes in it. In preparation I did an unofficial test build of yesterday's 4.0.2-rc1-pre for f13 which is currently at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2478501
