Description Gerry Reno 2006-12-26 22:20:51 EST
Description of problem:
XEN graphical FC6 guest install is stuck at the "No driver found" area for
network drivers.  One by one I selected every single driver in the list
including the network driver in the running Dom0 kernel and the result is always
the same: "No Driver Found", "Unable to find any devices of the type needed for
this installation type.  Would you like to manually select your driver or use a
driver disk?"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xen.i386                                 3.0.3-0.1.rc3          installed       
xen-libs.i386                            3.0.3-0.1.rc3          installed       
virt-manager.i386                        0.2.6-2.fc6            installed       

How reproducible:
3 times so far.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install DomU FC6 XEN guest
Actual results:
Stuck at network driver selection screens

Expected results:
Able to select a driver and continue installation.

This is a NFS install.
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2007-01-02 04:18:08 EST
This error message indicates that the virtual NIC creation / hotplug scripts in
Dom0  failed to complete successfully. Can you provide the xend.log,
xend-debug.log and xen-hotplug.log files from /var/log/xen on the host in question.

This is an interesting line from xen-hotplug.log

> bridge xenbr0 does not exist!

The Fedora xen installation tools all currently require that the Dom0 host is
setup with bridged networking. The standard /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp has this
enabled out-of-the-box with the setting:

(network-script network-bridge)

Can upload your /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp and also run 'ifconfig -a' capture the
output and upload it.

Closing because FC6 is end-of-life and the ifconfig info requested from Comment
#6 was never provided.
