Hi Everyone,

I'm running my Dom0 on Ubuntu 10.04. My Xen install is working ok - Xend is listening on port 8000 and xm list shows the running VMs. I wanted to upgrade my version of libvirt so I could get the latest virt-manager working with Xen 4.0. I used the Ubuntu packages linked on this page:


I then went and downloaded the source for virt-manager and virtinst. However, when I run virt-manager, I get this error:

Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'xen:///':
no hypervisor driver available for xen:///
Traceback (most recent call last):

    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed')
libvirtError: no hypervisor driver available for xen:///

looks like you don't have xen support in libvirt for this version... do you? A long time i had this error two days ago when trying out libvirt and i solved that by compiling my libvirt with xen support. (then i modified my xend to be available on port 8000 and had some fc13 and centos installations out of the box at ease). Do you get the same error, when installing some xen vms via virt-install?
