Subject: linux-image-2.6.24-1-xen-686: Please flag as domU and NOT dom0 kernel somewhere
Date: Mon, 18 Feb 2008 22:15:55 -0700
Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-xen-686
Version: 2.6.24-4
Severity: minor


Please note somewhere that this kernel only works as a domU kernel, and
not as a dom0 kernel. Yes, if someone is familiar with xen then it'll be
obvious, but it kinda sucks to have to stare at the screen of xen
hanging when trying to boot the kernel as dom0, because no error message
is provided.

apt-cache doesn't show any info about this, and neither does
/usr/share/doc/<package-name>.

Thanks!

No longer needed in Lenny kernel, which now provides Dom0 support again.
