Re: Xen on Mac Mini (intel), anyone ?

Yes. NetBSD 4.x and Xen proved very stable but note that it will not
support Boot Camp by default. Seek other information on supporting it in
non-Xen configurations if you want.

NetBSD 5.0.1 is proving frustrating though: amd64/x86_64 works for Xen
but gives constant network errors, even with a USB network adapter.

i386 gives stable network performance but it would seem that the
netbsd-XEN3-DOM0.gz kernel does not appear to work with the
xenkernel33-3.3.1nb6 package. (The same pair works with amd64)

You will receive (i386, not amd64/x86_64):

Mismatch between XEN and DOM0 kernel

You want netbsd-XEN3PAE_DOM0.gz but it is not in the standard places.

This boots!

One annoyance: there is a long delay at boot but zero delay when the
boot choices are given. Just keep tapping 1 or 6...
