+After installing this package, in addition to the /usr/doc/xen-*/README file;
+the Xen User Manual is installed as /usr/doc/xen-*/pdf/user.pdf.
+
+Before Xen can be used, xenstored, xenconsoled and xenbackendd services must
+be started, wich must be done with rc.xencommons script.
+The rc.xend script is no longer needed if you are going to use 'xl' instead
+of 'xm'. As a matter of fact, 'xm' is marked as supported but deprecated in
+Xen 4.1. Future versions of Xen will no longer support 'xm'.
+You may wish to add these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to start this service
+after booting from your Xen kernel:
+
+ if [ -d /proc/xen ]; then
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons ]; then
+ echo "Starting XEN commons: /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons"
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons start
+ fi
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains ]; then
+ echo "Starting XEN domains: /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains"
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains start
+ fi
+ fi
+
+You may also add these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown:
+
+ if [ -d /proc/xen ]; then
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains ]; then
+ echo "Stopping XEN domains: /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains"
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.xendomains stop
+ fi
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons ]; then
+ echo "Stopping XEN commons: /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons"
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.xencommons stop
+ fi
+ fi
+
+Remember to give executable permission to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown:
+
+ chmod 0755 /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown
