  • Status changed from New to In Progress

Redmine was not reachable when i proceeded with the update (mostly: yesterday for the domUs, and today for the dom0).

So, quickly, it was quite smooth for domUs, but it was a bit more difficult for the dom0:

- had to grub-install because the grub config now contains pragmas only valid with recent grub. No error message, no doc, so i found it almost by chance.

- adjusted minimal RAM for domUs (kernel 4 => 5)

System now runs with main functions OK. Still need to fix few thing, eg. cpus allocated to dom9 (was 1, now it takes the 4 cpus).
