Thanks for the suggestion, I assume I should keep the br0/br1... but trying your suggestion I still see the same error.  If I comment out the vif in the HVM config file, I get a similar error hotplug script but for the disk. 

After mucking about with this some more I think the HVM should boot (and not timeout) even if I have the wrong bridges/network scripts.  I'm not at the stage yet where I have no connectivity... the VM doesn't' stay up long enough because of these hotplugin script timeout/crash.

Hence my ramblings towards the end of the bug about finding postings on MAKEDEV and missing /dev/ entries but haven't managed to add these as MAKEDEV doesn't seem to exist on my vanilla installation and I've not had to do this on say a Centos XEN environment but that doens't work for other reasons (hw support) on my newer laptop.

In your Xen config: xend-config.sxp
try to comment out
#(network-script network-bridge)

and uncomment
(network-script network-dummy)

and restart xend.
once you have a manual bridge, there is no need for Xen's
network-bridge script.

Anyone can help me with this problem I've described here:


I've had XEN4.0 working on CentOS 5.4 platform without these problems.  I'm trying to do the same now with a newer laptop and CentOS didn't recognise half hte drivers.  The latest opensuse 11.3 does have these drivers and specifically nouveau integration and XEN which has got me 98% of the way there... I'm presently stuck on the networking part which looks different/problematic compared my experience on CentOS machine.

Now the VMs launch but I see various Hotplug scripts not working messages and the VM instantly stops running.

Thanks in advance,
