Hi folks,

If my understanding of the release notes is correct, the newest linux kernel released yesterday (2.6.20) has xen stuff built right in.  So, my guess is that a stock 2.6.20, appropriately configured, ought to work as a xen dom0/domU without further patches.   Is this true, or am I reading too much into the mention of xen virtualization in the  release notes?

So far, I have not succeeded in getting it to work, but the problems I've hit so far have been unrelated to xen.

And, while I'm asking, let me phrase a more general question.

In general, where can I find a list of patches (and a download site) to patch any given stock kernel to a xen-capable one?  Is there a web site somewhere that documents this?
