[opensuse] xen cannot allocate memory

I have Xen 3.0.3 on an opensuse 10.2.
This is the status of my memory:

mihamina@asus:~> free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1777664 1769308 8356 0 16288 673308
Swap: 6626728 60 6626668

Whne I create a ("256M RAM", "1 vcpu") domU:
Error: (12, 'Cannot allocate memory')

Well. The message is quite clear. But my swap is still free (6GB man!).
I guess the Xen utility is not able to swap things. What is the common
way to free some RAM? is there a kind of 'swapwhatever <PID>' magic tool
you would recommend? I wont reboot my box in order to free memory!

Thanks in advance.
