Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] debs for 2.0.7 and unstable
I've done an install (but not yet booted) and have noted the

I don't get an initrd and it looks like almost everything is compiled
in. Any chance of doing an almost-identical-to-debian build for dom0? My
mkinitrd complains that there is no LVM, and when I look at the .config,
LVM is compiled into the kernel.
