I've just finished installing SLES-11-SP2 ("Xen Virtualization Host" scenario) and followed the directions in Section 2.1 of the guide Virtualization with Xen...

  • If the host should always run as Xen host, run YaST System > Boot Loader and activate the Xen boot entry as default boot section.
    • In YaST, click System > Boot Loader.
    • Change the default boot to the Xen label, then click Set as Default.
    • Click Finish.
But the Xen label does not load the Xen VMM - It loads the Linux kernel:

This seems like a bug. Should I be concerned about the integrity of the installation? Or should I just manually add the entry to menu.lst and move on?
