Just to avoid any possible interference... And, because I've found it
at the Xen wiki

Similarly as above, I've disabled it to avoid any possible issue.
Also, found it at the Xen wiki:

You are true. I've used to use virt-install until it stopped to
support the xl toolstack (since Fedora 16).
Maybe now is working again...
Anyway, I've used xl just to check that the VM is working with Xen's xl alone.

This is just what libvirt translates from the native config file

Renamed the bridge to 'xenbr0':
xenbr0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

rebooted the machine... But same error

Could you be more specific. Sorry, I'm not a sysadmin.
I'm using Xen for research purpose
Thank you very much!
