Glad someone else has caught this. I have the same question, or more specifically, will Xen Dom0 be supported in Intrepid? I know Debian is planning to release Lenny without Dom0 support which I think is a big mistake. Is Ubuntu planning to take the same path? If so I will probably just switch to a distro with a commitment and ability to support Xen.

Hi Guys,

Just some additional info taken from the ubuntu kernel team mailing list:

"Xen domU is built into our current kernel. I don't think there are any
plans to incorporate a dom0 kernel for intrepid."

Can you help with this problem?
