For maximum benefit I suggest using the discussion page for page editing collaboration.


Firstly, some things on the current page aren't really clear, imho:

  • "The standard arch kernel can be use to boot the domUs."

So, domUs can use the standard kernel?

  • "In order for this to work one must add 'xen-blkfront' to the modules array in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf"

On the domUs?

  • "The basic idea behind adding a domU is as follows. We must get the domU kernels (...)"

BUT one can also use a standard archlinux kernel? Maybe there is an inconsistency.

Secondly:

  • Maybe someone more experienced can explain how to use encrypted (LUKS) filesystems with xen;
  • Maybe someone more experienced can add a section on how to use other OSs like Microsoft® Windows&trade.
  • I opt to delete the alternative installation method because experienced users can figure this stuff out for themselves and it might be horribly outdated;
