Hi list,

i just gotten a brand new xeon server with VT-d, so i wanted to install the latest Xen to use the new features (especially the VT-d stuff).
I have always run my stable xen systems with debian (etch), so i started installing a debian sid.
However, it seems that the current sid does not even have a xen kernel available as package.
I had to deinstall all xen packages and grab xen from source and recompile eveything.
That is fine for my first tests (works great btw), but i would like to have xen as a package for easy upgrades.

- is there going to be a xen kernel package in sid in the near future ? should i have chosen testing ?
- should i choose another distribution for this ? in that case i'm thinking ubuntu server, i would like to avoid RH.
