Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-10-09 14:45:38 EDT
FC5 guest on FC6 host cannot work for x86 due to the PAE switch
Comment 4 Stephen Tweedie 2006-10-09 15:30:09 EDT
Note that if you install an FC5 guest (eg. using an FC5 dom0) and then manually
add the FC5 "kernel-xen" RPM in the guest, you can then boot that kernel from an
FC6 dom0.  But there is no PAE-compatible kernel on the FC5 install media, so a
paravirt fresh install of FC5 on an FC6 host is not possible.
