there might be gotcha's, but it'll pretty much work, with some possible
hacking, on any distro?
Depends on what you want to do.
I tried SuSE, Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian as Dom0 and DomU. All
basically work, but when it comes to cross-distribution functionality,
Fedora is last and SuSE second last. I mean with that: on Debian and
Ubuntu it's mostly painless to install another distribution as DomU,
while on Fedora I have major headaches getting SuSE to work, and even
bigger headaches getting Debian to work. On SuSE I head some headaches
get Fedora to work. Fedora has only a PAE enabled Xen, whcih does not
work with netbsd DomU image, that is without PAE. but that might
change. (either by netBSD also prociding a pae-enabled kernel, or by
Fedora providing pae and pae-less packages.
Ah, SuSE only delivers python 2.5 by default, so XenSource Binary
packages don't work there - either one would need to find a way to
install python 2.4, or compile from sources, then the newer python
version seems to work well.
