    Default Recompilation of BT`s kernel [2.6.38] - Adding Xen Support

    Hello everybody!

    I want to run Backtrack 5.0 as domU [guest] paravirtualized under xen.
    To achieve it, I need to enable XEN support in backtrack`s kernel,
    unfortunately these options are hidden because symbol X86_TSC is set to false.
    I can enable X86_TSC by setting CPU type (Processor Family) in the kernel configuration,
    but this option is also somewhat hidden.
    [I m using menuconfig tool on .config that persist in /usr/src/linux]

    How can I enable xen support?
    Maybe its blocked from some reason?
    Is it even possible to run backtrack distribution as guest under xen?


    ps. I hope I`ve choose good place for this post [wasn`t sure where to put it], also I promise that I search forum

    Recompiling the BackTrack kernel is something we do not support, if you choose to do it you are on your own.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !
