When you say made ifcfg-xenbr0 by hand, what all did you do for that?

At least in my case, YaST2 didn't seem to make the bridge
automatically, although I'm sure I did something stupid (I hadn't
touched OpenSuSE for over a year, so I was a little rusty).  So I
ended up making /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-xenbr0 by hand.

That worked fine if I used xm create.  However for some reason xl
create would never add the vif to the bridge, so networking in the
domU wouldn't work.  I'm sure I was doing something stupid, but I just
used xm as I didn't have time to figure it out.

I don't remember having any of these problems w/ 11.3 & Xen 3.4.x :).
