Hi list,

I need an advice on the both mentioned above topics. We will start using Xen to replace some older servers. We are thinking about the following possible combinations:

1. Debian Etch with Xen 3.0 from Debian packages.
2. Debian Etch with Xen 3.1 from Source
3. Debian Lenny with Xen 3.1 from packages.

I would appreciate, if you can tell me some (dis-)advantages of the three combinations.

Here are some of my thoughts:
1: - easier to maintain than from source
   - stable version of debian
2: - stable version of Debian
   - current version of Xen
3: - Lenny is still testing, maybe not stable enough
   - Current Version of Xen
   - easier to maintain than from source

FYI: We are going to use only paravirtualization.

Thanks in advance,
