[Xen-users] Re: 64 Bit Dom0 and 32Bit DomU

I am hanging also on this issue, I want to a boot 32bit debian domu on
my 64bit host with XEN 3.2.1.

The 32bit debian 4.0 boots fine with my default 64bit domU kernel. This
makes me really wonder.

But with a 64bit kernel the 32bit domU is not that usable as I thought.
For example, openpkg and probably other software looks what kernel is
running and then thinks its on a 64bit system.

Now I am trying to figure out a new kernel-config to make this work.

Maybe you can give some tips what changes to the kernel configs are needed.

Thanks in advance
