I'll have to try -pre8 here soon and see if that works.  I was able to get my Xen Network device to work by manually switching the IRQ over to some other one (5, I think).  Unfortunately that caused a lot of other issues with stability of the system, and it's now very hard to keep it running, so I'm afraid I may have to undo that.

James, I'm still curious on the question someone else asked about why the Xen devices show up on the ISA bus?  I know it probably doesn't really make a difference, since it is "virtual" hardware, but that just seems a little strange.  Definitely not a criticism, just curious about it...

Thanks - Nick

Hi Nick,

I just upgraded to GPLPV 0.9.11-pre8.

Now I have the following IRQs:
ISA 7 Xen Net Device Driver
ISA 7 Xen Stub Device Driver (Console)
ISA 7 Xen Stub Device Driver (Virtual Frame Buffer)
ISA 11 Xen Block Device Driver
PCI 28 Xen PCI Device Driver

However, the network issue persists.
Windows tries to send packets (only a few over time), but Windows doesn't
receive any.

Did you have any luck getting it to work for you?

BTW: As intermediate solution, I would like to enable the QEMU network
driver while keeping the PV block devices. Is this possible?
