Same here, and using 'driver_name=phy' as you suggest in the other mail
works. I also agree we should point libvirt-libxl people to this (and I

Now, after having had small SELinux and bridging issues, I've got an
installation going... Let's see where it breaks! :-P

That being said, what do you think about the xend issues I was also
talking about in the original mail (which are more or less the same that
were already here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=893699) ? 

I'm talking about steps 18 to 32 there, where I say that I'm still not
able to get xend starting properly and automatically ? I'd really prefer
libxl to work and xend to "die", but until we're not there, I think we
should have at least one which is working! :-O
