Can someone recommend a Linux LiveCD which can start as Xen DomU (paravirtualized, no HVM)?

there is xenoppix but ive never tried it unit.aist.go.jp/itri/knoppix/xen/index-en.html Usually I quickly reconfig the domU for hvm and boot the distro rescue image –  Aleksandar Ivanisevic Dec 27 '09 at 21:37

I thought paravirtualization was merged into the kernel in 2.6.23. So any LiveCD based on a 2.6.23 kernel or newer should run as a DomU natively.

note: I haven't tried this so I can't confirm that this will work.

Having paravirtualization in the kernel source tree doesn't mean it's enabled at compile time in distros. Generally it is not. –  Caleb Oct 9 '10 at 13:24
