i'm running a small FreeBSD-Box as XEN-DomU.

        # uname -a
FreeBSD box.nirgal.de 7.2-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p8 #0: Wed May 26 03:08:50 UTC 2010 r...@i386-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/ obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

The Dom0 is run by my provider with the following System (this is some Ubuntu-Flavor):

        Linux #3 SMP Sat Sep 20 11:15:30 UTC 2008 x86_64
        xen-shell 1.2.83 running on Xen version 3.3.1

As FreeBSD 7.2 has reached EOL, i'm forced to update my System sooner or later to the current version.

Unfortunately neither FreeBSD 7.3 nor 8.0 will even boot, and are stopping with

        panic: vm_fault: fault on nofault entry, addr: c32ef000

after printing real and avaliable memory.

After reading the archives of this list, this seems to be a common problem, which /may/ be solved by building a custom kernel.

So i figure, that i have to check out the sources for FreeBSD 8 (RELENG_8) and build a new Kernel with the configuration from /usr/src/ sys/i386/conf/XEN. Is the result sufficient or do i have to do more than that?

Any advise would be appreciated.
