Bug Description

Binary package hint: xenner

Since ubuntu decided to follow upstream and incorporate KVM virtualization by default the easiest way to run Xen domU images is by using Xenner. It is important that a working Xenner package continue to be available so that users are not forced to migrate to a full Xen dom0 kernel/initrd in order to run Xen domU images. Xen is still the current preferred cloud hypervisor used by ec2 and users like to test their images locally.

We need Xenner to be updated to 0.47. There have been a number of serious bugs fixed between 0.41 and 0.47.

I also checked fedora to see where they were at on this:
# yum list xen xenner
Available Packages
xen.x86_64 3.4.1-5.fc12 fedora
xenner.x86_64 0.47-3.fc12 fedora

So fedora is runnng xen-3.4 and xenner-0.47. I don't know whether xenner-0.47 depends on xen-3.4. Something that would need investigated.
