Description of problem:
xen-guestinstall and virt-manager don't work with latest rawhide kernel
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen, but work on the same machine when I boot into the older
2.6.18-1.2747.fc6xen kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to reproduce:
1. start with 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen
2. run xen-guestinstall:
# xenguest-install 
Would you like a fully virtualized guest (yes or no)?  This will allow you to
run unmodified operating systems. yes

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/xenguest-install", line 396, in ?
  File "/usr/sbin/xenguest-install", line 327, in main
    guest = virtinst.FullVirtGuest()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/FullVirtGuest.py", line 30, in
    XenGuest.XenGuest.__init__(self, hypervisorURI=hypervisorURI)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/XenGuest.py", line 174, in
    self.conn = libvirt.open(hypervisorURI)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 39, in open
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpen() failed')
libvirt.libvirtError: virConnectOpen() failed

Same error happens when I type "no". virt-manager ask for the host to connect to
and that end without further error-messages.

Just to be sure, what version of libvirt and libvirt-python do you have
installed ?

Comment 2 Thorsten Leemhuis 2006-10-17 09:15:08 EDT

BTW, you can find me as thl in #fedora-devel if needed
Comment 3 Stephen Tweedie 2006-10-17 09:38:08 EDT
Reproduced here: xend fails to start, with  

File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/xenstore/xsutil.py", line 18,
in xshandle
  xs_handle = xen.lowlevel.xs.xs()
Error: (111, 'Connection refused')

errors in xend.log.  

2.6.18-1.2784.fc6xen works with the same userland.

Well, just guessing, but those changes look like the culprit to me:

rpm -q kernel-xen-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 --changelog | less
* Sa Okt 14 2006 Juan Quintela <quintela@redhat.com> 
- update xen HV cset 11740.
- xen kernel update:
  * linux-2.6-xen-fedora changeset:   36227:84594d199837
  * xen-3.0.3-testing changeset:   11740:64b3e8596dc9
  * linux-2.6-xen-3.0.3 changeset:   22940:410c17270c74
