Description of problem:

We need a paravirtualized RHEL4 kernel.
Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2006-08-08 15:58:56 EDT
Make this one i686 only.  The x86-64 bug is separate now.

Red Hat Enterprise Version 4 Update 5 added the support for Xen guest for
i686 platform.


Can someone please check the above verbage is appropriated for RHEL4.5 
update release notes or not?

many thanks.
Comment 7 Chris Lalancette 2007-01-15 10:53:29 EST
The above Release Note probably wants to be a little more specific...something like:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 4 Update 5 added support for paravirtualized
Xen guests for the i686 platform.
