Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : xen
Version     : 2                      
Release     : 20050823                  
Summary     : Xen is a virtual machine monitor
Description :
This package contains the Xen hypervisor and Xen tools, needed to
run virtual machines on x86 systems, together with the kernel-xen*
packages.  Information on how to use Xen can be found at the Xen
project pages.

Virtualisation can be used to run multiple versions or multiple
Linux distributions on one system, or to test untrusted applications
in a sandboxed environment.  Note that the Xen technology is still
in development, and this RPM has received extremely little testing.
Don't be surprised if this RPM eats your data, drinks your coffee
or makes fun of you in front of your friends.

Update Information:

Upgrade to a newer version of the upstream xen-unstable
development tree.  Note that this version is incompatible
with earlier xenolinux kernels since the hypervisor changed,
but that should not be an issue since Xenolinux did not work
in recent FC4 update kernels anyway.

Note that you should use kernel 2.6.12-1.1435 or newer with
this version of Xen.

- upgrade to today's Xen snapshot

* Mon Aug 15 2005 Rik van Riel  2-20050726
- upgrade to a known-working newer Xen, now that execshield works again

* Mon May 30 2005 Rik van Riel  2-20050530
- create /var/lib/xen/xen-db/migrate directory so "xm save" works (#158895)
