Xen depends on the hardware extensions found in server-class PowerPC. None of those chips are 32-bit, so essentially we're talking about a rewrite to move to 32-bit. Since 32-bit PowerPC don't have hardware support for hypervisors, you'd need to emulate a lot in software (which must be the approach taken by Integrity Padded Cell). -- Hollis Blanchard IBM Linux Technology Center _______________________________________________ Xen-ppc-devel mailing list Xenemail@example.com http://lists.xensource.com/xen-ppc-devel
