My Dom0 is Oracle Linux(64bit too), Xen version is 4.0.2, I installed
FreeBSD with the official iso image, that's
"FreeBSD-9.0-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso", I'm not sure if it was started as HVM
by default, how can i check it?
How to convert it to PV support, i just compiled and installed the src with
the "XEN" config in the source tree, I think that will include PV support,
since "XEN" is defined in the options, right?
