Re: HVM support in sysutils/xentools33 included?

Yes, but I wondered why SDL is commented out. I couldn't get any guest
booted without sdl (I've removed the comment and rebuild xentools33).
Maybe I made something wrong, but neither openbsd nor fedora guests
giving me a console window. As far as I understood, vnc could help me
out, but when this is the only way, why it's not a dependency?

qemu, which is used internally in the Xen HVM tools, provides a console via VNC natively.

Here's what I have at the end of my HVM configuration file:
sdl = 0
vnc = 1
vncdisplay = 0
vncunused = 1

Also the version difference between net/vnc and net/vncviewer confuses me.

net/vnc is the server side. You can use net/vncviewer to speak to an HVM Xen domU.

"vncviewer localhost" will work with the above configuration (for the first domU).
