Subject Re: [DISCUSS] How xs-tools gets installed for xen vms and systemvms
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:27:45 GMT
I might be completely wrong here.

I believe the xs-tools give us the PV drivers.

Since we're using Debian 7 which comes with Linux Kernel Version 3 which
has PV support we do not require the drivers.
