Note that gitco only provides xen RPM for x86_64. You need to download
http://www.gitco.de/repo/GITCO-XEN3.4.2_x86_64.repo (for 3.4.2), put
it on /etc/yum.repos.d, and simply run "yum install xen" (or simply
"yum update", if you have the time and network speed to update all
other packages as well).

It should configure your system to use new version of Xen while still
using old kernel. Look at /boot/grub/menu.lst before and after yum
update to see the difference.



HI Fajar,

Thanks for that. I'll give that a shot later this evening and let you know how it goes. I use 64bit all the time by the way, to make use of the extra RAM. I think I've tried the above in the past, but followed this guide: http://www.syntaxtechnology.com/2010/01/upgrade-xen-3-0-on-centos-5-4-x86_64-to-xen-3-4-2/

but it replaced the kernel...

What is the best way to make sure that the same kernel is used? Just run yum update xen?
