Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xen on Debian Lenny quite unstable
Well, the Debian Lenny Xen implementation (with that particular Xen Dom0 
kernel) is known to be "not that stable" - depending on the setup, load, etc. 
So in case of these problems, switching to something more proven like 
Redhat/CentOS shouldn't hurt. Or build the Xen solution on top of Lenny with 
Xen and kernel from source (more work, but for many it's worth the effort). Or 
just use XCP, XenServer.... :)

Funny, that. I have a bunch of those machines too - all 64 bit installs,
running on Opteron hardware, and no crashes. Been running those for a few
years now.

I'm guessing it's something specific you do :)
