Default Status of Xen on OpenBSD

FreeBSD has unblocked 2.6 based compatibility layers lately. (FC6)
Call the Linux compatibility a Linux kernel compatibility (and <= 2.6.12 is rather different of >=2.6.24).

Alternative for Flash is to run a minimal Linux distro under the qemulator.
You are absolutely right. I meant 2.6 Linux kernel when I said Fedora 9 which is current release.

What is the status of Xen for OpenBSD? Two years ago it was announced after the summer code of Google that OpenBSD is ready to run as a guest on Xen and that there is only one bug to be fixed so that OpenBSD can run as a host. After an email from January 2007 on misc@ I have not heard anything about it.

Status of Xen on OpenBSD, IIRC misc@ said it was childs play.
Better ask status of virtualization on DragonFly
Xen: go NetBSD. Go OpenSolaris.
Or Knoppix/parallel/cluster/Xen ...

For my part, I got the free CentOS based XenExpress.
NetBSD works even on a toaster but on none of my MBs.

And still preferring VMWare over all.
da more I know I know I know nuttin'
