Greetings,

Is there any chance of getting Xen Hypervisor running in Zedboard (or Xilinx ZC702) board?
Can I build Xen to run on this board?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
Xen 4.3 won't run on either of these boards: it requires virtualization extensions which the Cortex A9 lacks. Currently only the Cortex A7 and A15 have them. In theory, you can use the legacyhttp://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Paravirtualization_%28PV%29" target="_blank"> ARM PV port for older ARM CPUs, but effort has shifted to newer CPUs in the Xen and Linux mainlines. There has not been a recent release of the PV port and there is unlikely to be one, as most of the community is moving to Xen 4.3. Also the PV port, requires a custom Linux kernel, whereas Xen 4.3 works with a stock kernel.
Regards
Lars
