What did you type into Google that managed to produce no results? I tried putting your question title in and the only results that were not the required user manual were the manuals for versions 4.0 and 3.0. – Ladadadada Mar 19 '12 at 13:24

...did you look at the Xen website? I'm not sure what you're looking for that wouldn't be covered there. Otherwise you can look for Xen books on Amazon, but the website may have a lot of material already, or newsgroups/mailing lists to interact with others; if you have a specific question you can post it here. Otherwise this is a wee bit vague as to what you're trying to achieve.

First of all, yes I've seen Xen website, but I've found the structures of the wiki fragmentary, in particular I can't find answers to many problems that I'm having. By the way I didn't thought that asking for a guide that someone had used to learn Xen was a so useless question. I apologize. – Giorgio Mossa Mar 19 '12 at 13:29
Well, I didn't vote you down, you were vague in what your actual root problem was, and your snarky reply is not properly formatted because your "first of all" implies a "second" which you didn't get to. If you're going to be sore about it then you're better off saying nothing or clarifying your question so you can get a solution. – Bart Silverstrim Mar 19 '12 at 13:31
Sorry, I'll try to ask a more specific question, I apologize for my bad english and my bad tone. – Giorgio Mossa Mar 19 '12 at 13:37
@Bart: the xen website docu is crap and all the books are dealing with Xen 3 and not 4. it may be that there are lot of simliarities but i dont wanna play that puzzel game to find out whats xen 3 and whats xen 4 specific. i want a xen 4 documentation that actually really works when used in practice. – Chris Jun 20 '14 at 11:37
@Chris I wouldn't hold out much hope on the project being of high quality if they themselves cannot provide decent documentation since I'd think they are in the best position to document their own project. The next best bet for the most up to date working information is to see if they have a specific mailing list you can subscribe to to get information. – Bart Silverstrim Jun 20 '14 at 15:18
