Re: [Xen-users] tap:aio not working...

Have also located and attached the xen-hotplug.log file.  I'm trying to figure 
out how to interpret it, but if anyone sees anything obvious...

You should have some BLKTAPCTRL and TAPDISK lines in your
/var/log/messages which could give you some hints. If these lines are
missing you most probably don't have loaded the kernel modules (they
aren't loaded by default, IIRC) or blktapctrl isn't running.
