The name “Xeno” for the XenoServer project is specifically mentioned in the Controlling the XenoServer Open Platform (Nov 2002) as footnote1, which explains that the name has its origins in the ancient greek term Xeno...

    Unfortunately the rPi 3 still doesn't have the Generic Interrupt Controller (GIC) wired up to support virtualisation. For this reason you can't use Virtualisation on the rPI3.

    Hi Dominique, this sounds like something you may want to ask on xen-devel@lists.xenproject.org and/or xen-users@lists.xenproject.org ... You can post to both lists without subscribing. Just be clear in the title as to what you need and make sure you ask the question about what you need higher up in the thread (otherwise it may not get re...

    Are you using stock CentOS 6 or Xen4CentOS? If the former, you will need to switch to Xen4CentOS: see https://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/Xen4-01 & https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/Xen4QuickStart ... there is also a CentOS specific list you casn use (link on one of those pages - you need to be subscribed to post though)...

    By default, when Xen dom0 shuts down or reboots, it tries to save (i.e. hibernate) the state of the domUs. It appears that is not what you want. You can change that behaviour by setting these parameters in /etc/default/xendomains: XENDOMAINS_RESTORE=false XENDOMAINS_SAVE="" Then, create the subfolder auto underneath the /xen folder...
