NetBSD 5 is known to work on the current systems.


[FreeBSD] Xen support is in its infancy, but the stuff in 8-CURRENT only works on Xen hypervisor version 3.2 and above, so this should work with the newer servers running Xen 3.3, however, I don't know of anyone successfully working on it.

Linux distros

Centos 5.x, Debian 4.0, 5.0, 6.0.3, Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 10.04, and Gentoo are known to run on systems. Ubuntu 8.10 and fc10 will work with distro kernels now that has Xen 3.3 servers up and running.

Anything that uses a kernel newer than 2.6.27 or so should work fine with paravirt_ops.
