Thread-topic: PCI Passthru working on RHEL 5.1?
What Linux(es) is PCI passthru known to work?  I'm a Xen newbie trying
to get PCI passthru to work on RHEL5.1.  Has anyone successfully done
this?  I get the "seizing device" from pciback in dom0 but lspci in the
domU shows nothing, and dmesg in the domU shows no messages from
pcifront.  My domU config file entry looks like this:

pci = [ '07:00.0' ]

Any thoughts?  Do I need to rebuild the kernel with pcifront linked in?
(I'm not sure if RHEL does that by default).

Thanks in advance,
