[Xen-users] Xen 3.4.1-rc7 network problem (vif/tap)


I'm now blocked for 2 days on getting the network to work in my domU. Here is 
the problem :

The domU refuses to start when a vif is configured. It's just staying paused 
for about 1m40s, then the xm create command line give back with an 
"Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.", 
and the domU is destroyed.

Nothing particular in the xend.log, xend-debug.log or qemu-dm-domUname.log.

However, if I manually unpause the domU, and cancel (<CTRL><C>) the xm create 
command to avoid the destruction of the domU after the 1m40s timeout, I get a 
perfectly working domU with Network. Strangely, the vif network interfaces are 
now named tap[domUid].[interface#] (ie tap2.0).

So, my questions :
- Why is there no clear log about vif-bridge script, and how can I debug this 
- Why are the interfaces named tapX.X instead of vifX.X ?
- Is there a default name for the bridge interface ? I'm currently using 
xenbr0, but I see that some documentations are talking about eth0, should I 
use eth0 as default bridge name ?
