    Pablo, I don't know if the number of virtual NICs is documented anywhere, but I was under the impression the limit was around 256. I suggest asking in the xen-users mailing list to see if one of the developers knows what the limit really is (and, if so, why you are having this problem). I would also look at the various log files gene...

    FWIW, I've added the following section to the FAQ Compatibility page of the Wiki: http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_Project_FAQ_Compatibility#Do_the_proprietary_NVIDIA_graphics_drivers_work_with_Xen_Project.3F...

    Tom, I don't see any particular reference to the proprietary drivers in the Wiki. I will add something to the "Common Problems" page. In some sense, the issue with any proprietary video driver is "Does it support Xen Project?" rather than "Does Xen Project support the driver?"

    Tom, The proprietary NVIDIA drivers are known to be highly problematic when used with the Xen Project Hypervisor. Since it is proprietary, there is a limited amount of information available for debugging, and we very well might need cooperation from NVIDIA to fix the problem (and that doesn't appear to be a priority for them right now). ...

    According to this page: http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Compiling_Xen_From_Source "Xen Project downloads various components at build time. This means that building Xen Project currently requires an active connection to the Internet" so it appears that an Internet connection is needed if you are compiling from source. The...

    Nate, Thanks for sharing that! And it does make perfect sense that if this is a fairly recent qemu bug, using the alternative qemu which is bundled with Xen Project software would solve the problem. Glad you're up and running! Russ...

    As a result of this question, during last week's Document Day we embarked on building a Huge Page wiki page. The new page is taking shape so it may be helpful in future: http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Huge_Page_Support Russ...
