Both, actually. libxl driver is definitely less mature, and might still
miss some features, but the basic create-pause-resume-shutdown-destroy
workload works really well for me.

Yeah, I think I remember your bugreport from an e-mail on xen-users. I
don't know what to say because I know nothing about libvirt on
Debian/Ubuntu, but I guess that depends on the very specific version of
libvirt that they ship.

For me, on Fedora 18 (and ISTR even on Fedora 17, but perhaps I was
using the virt-preview repository), all I have to do is to make sure
xend runs, if I want libvirt (so both virt-manager and virt-install) to
use xend. To stop it (and disable for starting automatically at boot
time), if I want them to use libxl.

What do you mean with "doesn't work" ?
