Hi, im using debian with kernel 2.6.18 from xen and it works just fine.

i use this line in the guest cfg:
vusb = ['usbver=2, numports=2']

and then i can list and pass devices like this:

# xm usb-list-assignable-devices
1-2          : ID 20e8:5820 JTTEL Inc. JTTEL Composite Devices
2-1          : ID 046d:0a12 Logitech Logitech Wireless Headset

# xm usb-attach htpc 0 2 1-2

it was some time sence i first tired to get this to work and was only able to get it to work with the 2.6.18 kernel from xen on the host but on the guest any xenpatched kernel seems to work, does anyone know if there is a newer kernel where pvusb works on the host??

If you're using the centos5 kernel-xen, I don't think it has the needed
pvusb backend drivers included (for dom0).
