That's odd because none of the xm commands work for me, if I issue xend
start It returns an error, I can paste the error tomorrow when im back
in the office.

At the moment I can't use this really as I use the GPLPV drivers which
don't seem to work with 4.1 and I can't get onto the console of a linux
guest nor connect to it via the network even though xl list shows the
guest as being up :(

Im toying with the idea of moving back to 4.0.1 but I don't really want

I'm seeing something similar (Squeeze with the Sid 4.1 xen packages
rebuilt from the source packages).

# xl create squeeze1.cfg -c
Parsing config file squeeze1.cfg
xenconsole: Could not read tty from store: No such file or directory
libxl: error: libxl_device.c:476:libxl__wait_for_device_model Device
Model not ready
xl: fatal error: libxl_create.c:535, rc=-1:

Both xenstored and xenconsoled are running.

However, xm create works fine. And once started, xl list, xl shutdown,
etc seem to behave fine as well.

Bug in xl create?
