Default Bug#454604: linux-2.6: Xen kernel packages for 2.6.22

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.22-6

I've been unable to find an official debian kernel which has
Xen supporter after 2.6.18-5 (released with etch). While I realize
there were changes in later kernels that complicated the patches,
Ubuntu has had Xen support for 2.6.22 for nearly 3 months (see
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.22/+bug/132726).

Can you please integrate their Xen patchesets into the official Debian
kernels? I'd be fine with them at least showing up in experimental to
start.

Thanks,

Brian

your question is quite out of date, unstable has 2.6.23.

so you'd need to point us to it,
also quite pointless as bug report, ask on ml.

Ok then, so then consider this a request to have 2.6.23 kernel images that
work with the Xen packages in unstable. Right now it's pretty pointless
to have Xen in unstable at all if the user and kernel spaces don't work
with each other or aren't available.

I disagree that it's a pointless bug report.
It was a feature that existed in etch that is no longer available in lenny -
in my mind, a bug, if not an urgent one.

This bug report should at least remain open for tracking when Xen support
is available again. Debian can't be the only Linux distribution out there
trying to get Xen working on the latest kernels properly...

until now this bug report has only hot air, aka useless.
yes there exist other that moan about xen.
bug upstream or test a patch that is worthwile.

hint kvm is cool.

I'm sure that Ubuntu or fedoraa is probably already doing some work to
get it ported (iif has not done it already) to 2.6.23. I think it
would be worth to take a look there and see if they have it done.

maks, could you apply it if we manage to find a patch for 2.6.23?

> hint kvm is cool.

It doesn't change the bug regarting the regression about the features
when comparing with etch kernel. ;-)

Stephen Frost pointed out that Ubuntu has Xen support for 2.6.22 in gutsy.
There don't yet appear to be kernel images for 2.6.23 or better in hardy.

The XenSource upstream is sort-of defunct these days. For some
background information, see:

Indeed.

Looks like XEN will have bad days until it's done for paravirt_ops
then :-)

Default Bug#454604: linux-2.6: Xen kernel packages for 2.6.22

I am a new subscriber and have been following the BUGS.

I also am very confused and upset with how Debian development and bug
efforts regarding XEN seem to be avoided. I have followed XEN
development and bugs since the onset and attempted in vain to create any
interest in the debian-user list. At the time ETCH was released I spoke
to an individual in Xen development who was also concerned and he said
he would pressure release people in Debian to make some kind of special
allowance to add XEN into the ETCH distribution -- apparently he was
successful but there appears to be little effort to go further (to
incorporate changes and bugs) because of the way the release mechanism
works for Debian releases. So it appears -- until the next official
Debian release -- there will be no more changes.

There has to be a way to be a way of handling the situation for projects
external to Debian but need to be part of Debian. I suggest possibly
something like an unofficial release overlay such that these special
releases get utilized into the distribution but have no official
sanction -- which I think Ubuntu has essentially done. Ubuntu has
sufficient independence from Debian that it can deal with these kind of
issues it's own way. Debian should also have that kind of flexibility
but in a way that does not disrupt Debian releases. With all the
brilliant Debian developers, maintainers, and people with experience I
can not see how this kind of situation can persist.


Thanks -- Ted Hilts
