Adding support for Xen ParaVirtualized DomUs to OpenQRM.

PVs are both faster and easier to manage and they are quite in line with OpenQRM's paradigm where kernels (and accompanying initrds) and root filesystems are separatedly managed.

    Hi,

    many thanks for your feature request. Since Xen PV does not support pxe booting vms we currently do not further support PV. Anyway good point of course. We will consider it for some of the next versions.

    many thanks + have a nice day,

    Matt

    "Since Xen PV does not support pxe booting vms we currently do not further support PV"

    Who said that? See http://zhigang.org/files/docbook/xen-pxeboot.html

    And even if it weren't supported you still could boot PVs by means of callling `xm create`.

    Thanks for your interest and keep with your really great work, Matt.

    right, still quite complex. That is why we do not have it in openQRM yet.
    ... you are of course more than welcome to help on this feature ;) pls just let me know.

    greetz + best,

    Matt
