[opensuse-virtual] Bug (Maybe?) with finding Xen Guest installation repository

Hello List!

Because with a friend's Ubuntu machine I can do a similar creation, I
think it's now maybe a bug. In Xen or OpenSuse I don't understand.
I have also read that installing Fedora and Redhat in this method is
also successfull.

I have installed the very newest OpenSuse Version11 from the Factory
Repository. It uses a quite new Xen Hypervisor,
"xen-3.2.1_16881_04-2"

And I have started the machine in the Xen Kernel

uname -a
Linux server 2.6.25.4-8-xen #1 SMP 2008-05-26 15:23:05 +0200 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Now I attempt to create a Guest domain, also OpenSuse. I am using the
method with

xm create

The Test-configuration is the most simple I can make. It is exactly only

cat test.cfg
name='test'
builder='linux'
kernel='/home/tetsu/test/vmlinuz-xen'
ramdisk='/home/tetsu/test/initrd-xen'
maxmem=1024
memory=1024
vcpus=1

extra='install=http://134.76.12.5/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source?device=eth0
hostip=192.168.1.10/24 gateway=192.168.1.1 nameserver=192.168.1.1'
root='/dev/xvda1'
disk=['phy:/dev/v2/test,xvda,w']
vif=['mac=00:16:3E:01:01:01,bridge=xenTEST,vifname=vifTEST']
vfb=['type=vnc,vncdisplay=1,vnclisten=127.0.0.1']
on_crash='destroy'
on_reboot='destroy'
on_shutdown='destroy'

To install the Guest, I create it

xm create -c test.cfg

In the VNC display of the output I see a "Red" Error message from the
Linuxrc program.

Could not find the OpenSuse Repository.
Activating manual setup program.

Following the advise I have read I check all the entries in the Manual
Linurc dialogue. When continuing, I see again another "Red" Error
message,

No Repository Found.

It appears not to use corectly the Guest's interface, eth0?

But I see in the Domain 0 the interface is added at the bridge,

brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
xenTEST 8000.00504300415e no peth0
vifTEST

Is it a bug? Can someone help?

Thank you!
