Heard that a couple of times at several fosdems from Ian,
and when you mention "xm" at the xen-lists you are considered a relic
from a distant past....

How ever:
When you do a fresh instalation of the xen-stuff in 13.1, and you try to
create a VM like one is used to do in previous versions, i still got a
warning that i had to check because "xend was not running"

Charles, is there a check in {vm,virt}-install for xend running? I
vaguely recall something along those lines, but suppose it was fixed
long ago.

WRT libvirt, If xend is disabled and libvirtd is restarted, it will use
the libxl driver, and never fail or warn due to "xend not running".

btw the message i got when trying to build it from yast was:
"Error Failed to start the vm, Details:
Error, device0 (VIF) could not be connected.
Hotplug scripts are not working"

I think this is due to a mis-configured toolstack. We've also fixed a
number of bugs since 13.1 was released. I assume you have all the
latest updates? You can also check for relevant fixes that are queued
for the next update in our 13.1 maintenance project


Hi Jim,

yes lastest patches were included (during installation).

Is it worthwhile trying to add the stuff in:
the libvirt rpm's are from 21-ste of januari ?
