what do other people think of the possibility of an installation-script für a xen based para-virtualized core ?
My vision is that there is an install script that asks for a path for the kernel image as well as for a path for the rootfs and just installs it from the dvd right away.
Maybe even a basic config file for xen.
With the option in xen to forward pci-devices I suppose, tv-cards could be forwarded to that core as well.
And for the developers, you could have a productive- and a testing-image of LMCE and be able to switch easily.
It would be faster than vmware I guess, as it is para-virtualized and I do not know about vmware's abilities to forward pci-devices to a guest.
Does anyone of you know about xen ? I'm still new to it...
Does anyone of you know about the xenbr-bridges especially ? I'm thinking about 2 network segments; 1 for md's and 1 for working pcs... is partitioning of xen virtual interfaces possible ?
Could there be problems with performance especially of mythtv-backend ? DanielK mentioned something about special kernel settings ?
Or has somebody even done all this already ? Could you provide a script for the rest of us then ?
And finally; do you think it is actually worth the work and should that script be shipped with the dvd ?
