Re: Xen backports questions

The package name contains the xen major version (3.2), but the actual
package version in backports is 3.2.0-3~bpo4+2. You can see this using
packages.debian.org, or with
"apt-cache show xen-hypervisor-3.2-1-amd64". The part before the - is
the upstream version, in this case "3.2.0".

You need a kernel package with "xen" in the name.
linux-image-2.6-xen-amd64 is a metapackage that depends on the latest
debian xen kernel for amd64 (currently 2.6.18).
