Yes, I can confirm the first packages were broken. I'll try those 
tomorrow, when I am back at work. However, they look fine. First of all, 
all required files are present and I extracted and md5sum-ed them 
against the ones from my kernel ( of which I know they work ). All 
md5sums are fine.

Thanks a lot for the quick fix.

Are you going to push these packages to the Xen4CentOS repo? The reason 
I ask, is that I use Xen4CentOS at work, where I run a fairly large 
infrastructure on Xen4CentOS in a production environment. Mixing bug 
fixes with minor updates - repo version is at 3.18.12 while you provide 
3.18.17 - is a bit of a problem, as I need to validate the new kernel 
version before pushing it into production (read: run some tests, check 
if everything works).
I recon that updated versions of LTS kernels incorporate bugfixes, which 
are desirable anyway. But i'd rather wait until they are pushed to 
Xen4CentOS before "arguing them into production". Hence my question on 
the timeline.
I'll give the packages a spin anyway tomorrow and come back to report my 

Again, thanks a lot. And, by the way, rest assured that the whole 
Xen4CentOS effort is very much appreciated and matters a lot.
