Hi Fajar,

I use HyperVM to manage the XEN domU virtual machines, and from what I
understand, it does run a XEN kernel

Linux usaxen01.softdux.com 2.6.18-8.1.15.el5xen #1 SMP Mon Oct 22
09:01:12 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The domU runs on Gentoo, so I don't know if it's the same as for
CentOS, in terms of installing a xen kernel?

I tried emerge --search xen, but the results weren't very good. Any suggestions?


Kind Regards
Rudi Ahlers
