I have installed xen-3.0.2-0.FC5.1 on a 4 cpu dell 6650.
xen0 kernel and xenU kernel are 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.
dom0 starts correctly.
I set this in grub.conf different from def install of kernel-xen0, in
order to assign 128M to dom0 and let it start at init level 3:

kernel /boot/xen.gz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 dom0_mem=128M
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5xen0 ro root=LABEL=/1 3 quiet

I cannot start xend because of this error in /var/log/xend.log
[2006-05-10 08:50:55 xend] INFO (SrvDaemon:285) Xend Daemon started

/var/log/xend-debug.log says:

Any hints? The same was with xen-3.0.1-4.i386.rpm
Thanks in advance.
