I just setup a new laptop with
- Xen-unstable (http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.git), installed via "make xen", "make install-xen", "make tools", "make install-tools"
- dom0 kernel 2.6.30-rc6-tip (from git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git, changed to bleeding edge via "git checkout origin/xen-tip/next  b xen tip/next "), installed via "make menuconfig" (enabled PAE, Xen paravirtualized guest support, Xen dom0 support), "make" and "make install", then built initrd image
- Debian lenny using only stable packages

So when I boot into Xen with 2.6.30-rc6-tip, everything works fine but xend is not running. Trying to start it ("/etc/init.d/xend restart") throws an error "grep: /proc/xen/capabilities: No such file or directory". The directory "/proc/xen" is actually there, but empty. I had the same problems with installing Xen-3.4-testing only a few days ago.

What is the problem?

Best regards
