Hi all,

I have done a simple checking for Xen and VMX on FC5-test2. Basically, I can 
create VMX on FC5-test2 IA32. But FC5-test2 IA32e (x86-64) doesn't provide Xen 
and Xen0 kernel, so didn't do Xen and VMX testing for it.

Beside of testing Xen and VMX, I also found some issues about installation, 
which I have updated the bug #179078 as a NB. The following is the testing 
results only for Xen and VMX.
1. *** IA32E hasn't RPMS about Xen hypervisor and Xen0/XenU kernels. __FAIL__

2. *** In order to boot up IA32 Xen0, I have to add pci=noacpi as the boot 
parameters of Xen0 kernel, or system will hang when initial PCI. I don't know 
if it is only related to my Machine. __FAIL__

3. After install IA32 Xen RPMs, I can see /boot/grub/grub.conf has been changed 
with Xen kernels.   __PASS__

4. *** /usr/lib/xen/boot/vmxloader isn't in the RPM package, so VMX Guest 
couldn't be created. I suspected build system hasn't bcc, it is from DEV86 
package.  __FAIL__

5. After copy a useable vmxloader to the destination, IA32 VMX Guest can be 
created successfully!  __PASS__ 

6. VMX has good network connection and Xwindows started.   __PASS__

7. XenU can be created and works well.    __PASS__

8. Couldn't get Xen Changeset by "xm info" or "xm dmesg".

9. The new kernel names of Xen/Xen0/XenU seemed a little confused. E.g. the 
Xen0 name is like vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.29_FC5hypervisor. I thought hypervisor is 
for Xen.gz. Xen0 is the Service OS.

Any comments please let me know. But I will have 8 days holiday from tomorrow, 
so emails reply might be slow and occasional.

[FYI] We are planning to do more testing for FC5-test3.
