Where do I find documentation on Xen?

On this wiki: the following places are useful to start

For info on navigating the wiki see:

What support is available for Xen?

There is both paid and volunteer support available for Xen. Volunteer support is available via

  1. The Xen mailing lists
  2. On Internet Relay Chat (IRC) channel ##xen on irc.freenode.net
  3. A search tool is available to search all Xen mailing lists.

Commercially support for Xen is typically only provided for commercial distributions of Xen. Also some Linux distributions commercially support Xen.

Where can I find a list of available Xen dom0 kernels?

Take a look at the Dom0 Kernels for Xen wiki page.

Where can I find answers to some common questions and problems about Xen?

Take a look at the [[[XenCommonProblems]]] wiki page.

Where can I find Best Practices about running Xen?

Take a look at the [[[XenBestPractices]]] wiki page.

I'm interesting in being a Xen developer, is there a list of projects to work with?

Yes! Please check out the XenDevelopmentProjects: wiki page for more information!

Where and how can I report a bug?

This information will need an upgrade, but by now, as reported by Ewan Mellor and Keir Fraser, is to:

  1. Place question in xen-users mailing list, just to be sure that this is not a faq or something like that
  2. If it is not resolved in xen-users mailing list, and it IS a bug, you have to:
    1. Place bug in bugzilla
    2. Flag the problem (with link to bugzilla, and all that you think is necessary) in xen-devel mailing list

Where and how can I submit a patch?

To submit a patch, put it in xen-devel mailing list, as reported by Keir Fraser, in plain-text unified diff format inline in the main body or as an attachment. Also, please add

Signed-off-by: Name Surname <email@domain>

to your email with patch, as reported by Ewan Mellor.

If there is a bug in bugzilla report the id of the bug, but by now do not expect anything from bugzilla (see above: "Where and how can I report a bug?").
