Clearly explained. Thanks.
The gzipped versions are the ELF vmlinux run
through gzip. It needs an
external agent to decompress and parse it before transferring control.
As for the differences with pvgrub, I'm not
familiar with it.
That 'external agent', and it's presence, or lack, in PVGRUB is
something I'll explore.
'what' is now in hand.
Any reason *why* the opensuse -xen kernels are NOT 'delivered' as
bzImages, whereas the -default are?
