ive done these steps but that didnt work (uninstalled the FC6 xen packages
and made a seperate make, make install in the tools dir).
im getting an error with both the old and new configuration syntax.
when i use the "new" configuration syntax i get this error in console:

Using config file "./mails".
Error: Errors were found at line 2 while processing ./mails:
            (name mails)

in the log i see nothing.
i posted the content of my config file in one of the previous mails (see

The problem you're having is related to having two different versions of Xen on your system. I ran into this just last week while installing 3.1. My guess is that you have not removed all the original FC6 packages (although I couldn't give you a complete list, since I'm all debian). Take another look at the packages on your system, and you may also want to try a 'make distclean' in your source directory. And the "old" syntax for the config files is still valid. I wouldn't worry about using the new syntax.
