That was it. Thanks a lot.

I had old xen with FC4. Doing 'make uninstall' wiped many files out. Then I manually did 'rm -rf /usr/lib/python*/site-packages
/xen' and 'rm -rf /usr/lib/libxc*' Then I did 'make install' and 'xend start' was successful.

I'l wager that you had an old version of Xen installed, and just copied
this over the top.

I'd recommend doing the following then re-installing:

mv /etc/xen /etc/xen-old
rm -rf /usr/lib/python/xen /usr/lib/python*/site-packages/xen
rm -rf /usr/lib/libxc*

If you have the source, do "make uninstall" which does a rather more
thorough job.
