I did not mean to reply directly to you Michael, it seems gmail picked your email directly and I saw that after I hitting Send, sorry about that one.

Subject: Re: [Fedora-xen] xen and fedora

and correctly so, Michael, that --oldpackage did the trick, thanx a lot, I have bravely removed previously installed xen and kernel, I then reinstalled xen and kernel- via yum, rebooted the machine remotely, I executed 
uname -r and is returned :) 

vm info 
Error: Unable to connect to xend: No such file or directory. Is xend running?

wha am I missing? I tried
"/etc/init.d/xend start" but I get no output

hi Mike,
indeed it got to me, I think what I am trying to find out is steps to take
before I execute dracut. because the tutorial states for fc13, I think guys
have already done this on fc14. I attempted to fetch and install myoung
kernel but it fails as its build for earlier kernel version than the one I

It should work if you yum install the specific kernel version. Or you can download it and run rpm -ivh --oldpackage .

You won't be able to run xen with your stock Fedora 14 kernel. You'll
have to replace it completely with a xen-capable kernel, like Jeremy's
2.6.32 kernel that you build yourself, or one of the ones that myoung
built for Fedora 12.

Though a stock Fedora 16 kernel will work (with xen 4.1 and xl).
