We have Citrix Xen 4.1 running on CentOS 5.5. I am unable to change this.

I wish to emulate the Raspian OS developed for the Raspberry Pi - in essence a Wheezy Debian compiled for ARM11.

I have been unable to find any info about running a DomU to emulate an ARM. Any pointers in teh right direction would be appreciated.

I will check, but I don't believe a DomU can emulate a different architecture. If you want an ARM DomU, I believe you need to run Xen on top of ARM hardware.

    OK, thanks for the info.

    Looks like I will have to run QEMU on an Ubuntu DOM0 - virtual within virtual...... Not very efficient :(
