I reinstalled Fedora 18 and used the Virtualization Preview Repository (
While libvirtd+libxl still has problems (e.g., I got "error: internal error
libxenlight failed to create new domain"), the combination libvirtd+xend
seems to work.
Actually, I still get problem with virt-viewer but I can live without it by
using a VNC viewer.
I hope to see Virtualization Preview package move soon in the official F18
