Hi Folks,

I've been getting just a little fed up with the state of Xen on Debian Lenny - there are a couple of known bugs that lead to periodic kernel panics - but fixes haven't made it into the Lenny distribution. I'm sort of waiting to see how things shake out with Debian Squeeze, when it becomes stable, but...

I've been noticing that Suse (both the enterprise and OpenSuse versions) seem to stress support for Xen, as well as for BTRFS (which I've been keeping my eyes on).

So... I'm wondering if anybody has any opinions, based on direct, hands-on experience on Debian vs. OpenSuse as a base for a configuration consisting of 2 production machines configured for high-availability failover of Xen VMs, using DRBD and Pacemaker?

Thanks much,

Miles Fidelman
