"Install "kotd" (kernel of the day) via ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/kernel/kotd/openSUSE-11.3/x86_64/ kernel-xen- ( supporting udev 157).

What,actually, requires just one back port CS 21188 from xen-4.0-testing.hg, which is not in official 4.0 tarball been used for 11.3. The procedure bellow is pretty much standard and was described by me in details just to compare how much more flexible is patching Xen Hypervisor on Fedoras. In particular, all properly named by version rpms been built from src.rpm gets installed upgrading old ones right away with no questions and no additional zypper (yum) install run. One more patch has been tested with Suse's 11.3 version of Xen Hypervisor. It was ZFS 24 support per Mark Johnson ([1])."
