Hi Pasi,

I am still confused how to proceed with the XEN installation. The reason is, If I go to www.xen.org.downloads then It shows that XEN comes with linux-2.6.18. I am afraid whether it is possible to build xen from source along with customized vanilla kernel.

You should use 'xen/master' instead of 'xen-tip/master'.

'xen-tip/master' is old and deprecated.

All the new development is happening on 'xen/master', and that's what
people should test/use.

'xen/master' branch pv_ops dom0 kernel is currently at Linux
