Default Problem solved, sort of...

Yes, I found the solution.

I've lost the reference, but in another forum found a comment that Xen 4.2 is incompatible with libvirt.

I backed out xen 4.2 and installed 4.1.3, and was able to properly build libvirt.

The resulting system does not work, but I believe that is because my underlying hardware is not up to the task.

Had the same issue. The solution is actually really easy.

If you follow this tutorial http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...virtualization
you are adding an additional repository from http://au1.mirror.crc.id.au/repo/
and there is xen 4.1.3 available. libvirt is incompatible to xen 4.2 at the moment so you have to use 4.1.3.
After you added the repository just do

Quote:
yum install xen-4.1.3-2.el6.x86_64 xen-devel-4.1.3-2.el6.x86_64
thats it. now you should be able to patch libvirt just fine. You need to make sure that if you used yum install xen that you remove all references to xen-4.2 or you will get lots of errors. So uninstall everything for xen 4.2 before you install xen-4.1.3

Default libvirt not compatible with Xen 4.2

I found the thread discussing the problem with Xen 4.2 and libvirt...
https://www.crc.id.au/2012/09/20/xen...-to-the-repos/

The new libxenlight introduced in Xen 4.2 leads to the compile issues.

Going back to Xen 4.1.3 solves the issue if you need to use Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager). Or skip the libvirt update and use xm to manage the VMs.
