Adam mentioned to me in IRC that he doesn’t have the time to deal with this. Since I use these packages daily through my work projects and it is important for my company to have high quality packages, I volunteer as a (comaintainer.


I have built my packages for 2.0.6 and made some minor changes I consider enhancements including resurrecting support for the 2.4 series that died off in the last version Adam provided. I split the kernel-patch-xen deb into two separate packages for 2.4 and 2.6. I also built a (very unofficial) kernel-source-2.4.30, merging in all applicable patches from the (also unofficial) kernel-source-2.4.29 tree. This was necessary for a project taking place here that is using private kernel code that hasn’t been forward ported to 2.6.


You can find my Xen 2.0.6 patches at, comments welcome.
