    Hi all:

    I want to use one server with elastix and whant to use the same server to install a windows based skype gateway. Same server, two diferent OS.

    I have installed centos 5.1 with xen support. I can install elastix and windows xp on it, without problem. I have centos in dom0, elastix in dom1 and windows in dom2.

    The problem comes with the hardware. Dom0 can see the cards, but elastix (dom1) can't. I have use some methods to hide pci cards in dom0 and run dom1 wiht mapped pci id, but elastix don't detect the hardware.

    Maybe the best option will to use elastix like dom0 (dom0 detect all the hardware) but when I run elastix with xen kernel, zaptel don't work because all the modules are compiled for non xen kernel. I haven't test it with 1.0 alpha version. Can be run elastix like dom0 in 1.0? Some experience?

    Cheers.

    Just a guess, is zaptel is compiled against the existing kernel?

    Else, the kernel-xen that comes with Elastix itself could be used in dom0 and the rest in dom1...domN as needed. Just a guess, I'm yet to figure out!
