I want to add my following questions because in the handbook are they
1) What is this "kernel-current" ? And how can I make myself this
"kernel-current" using the base system
and the tools in it ?
2) What is "mdroot" ? And how can I build a "mdroot"?
3) Where are the Xen sources located? Does The FreeBSD project just
write patches which are then
used to modify the original sources to get Xen run on FreeBSD
is there a fork like source repository where the FreeBSD Xen is maintained?
I hope that someone can answer me these questions but also
I think including the answers to the Handbook would be a great help
for all who want to use
Xen on FreeBSD.
