Default 2.6.12.6-xen :: How to upgrade the kernel or installing kernel modules for iptables?

I've never upgraded a xen-kernel. So maybe somebody can help how to do it.

My goal is to have some iptable features which are only compiled in the kernel >= 2.6.14.

What I would like to hafe is some iptable modules like the string rule.

Did someone had picked up those experience and could give an howto?

Did you have a look at the Xen tutorial? http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian
It describes how to compile a Xen kernel.

Yes, I have had a look on it :-)

But a bit afraid to change the whole kernel. I hoped there would be a solution for the kernel module to load.

You can keep the old kernel and also the stanza for it in /boot/grub/menu.lst. If your new kernel doesn't work, you can boot into the old one.
