Failure to virt-install F10 PV DomU and repeated issue with CentOS 5.2 in stub domain after same port via http://gitco.de ( upgrading only hypervisor to keep virt-install alive at Dom0 ) brought me to idea just go through traditional “hg” cloning mercurial repository at http://bits.xensource.com and build local Xen with kernel

Actually, technology based on utilizing local Apache Mirrors along with pygrub profile,referencing installation versions of kernel ( either xenified or supporting pv_ops) and corresponding ramdisk, to create boot able PV DomU image followed by switching to another standard pygrub profile to load PV DomU with image, been already created, is flexible enough to cancel urgent need in virt-install. Installation PV DomUs for Ubuntu and Debian doesn’t need virt-install as well. Stub domains also work much more smoothly at Xen 3.3.1rc1-pre port to CentOS 5.2 mentioned in the header.
