Re: [Xen-devel] XL low memory

My understanding of this parameter, is that it sets the starting amount of memory, and the maximum authorized.  The memory could be ballooned down anyway!  Is that the case?
I want to keep the balloon feature for now, because there is only two gigs of RAM on this computer...

You can do this with Xen command line parameters, at boot time.
