"Install Xen 4.0 and Libvirt like on F12 (  ). Via my experience xend will hang for 5-7 min at startup and xen managed bridging will fail as well. This behavior stays the same under either 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 pvops kernels. At the same time PV guests might be unable to obtain IP via interface virbr0. Ubuntu Lucid official xenified installer fails with DHCP request been sent to virbr0 under either 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 kernels,unless you will manually place Lucid guest on subnet 192.168.122.0 and point to DNS Server of your's ISP. In this case installer will continue fetching data from Internet and been created Lucid PV DomU would be routed to the Net via bridge virbr0 , having static IP address. Virt-install of F13 PV DomU does detect virbr0 with 22.214.171.124 and fails to do that with 126.96.36.199. Workaround for the issue follows bellow. There are no any problems with HVM DomUs with any dhcp bridge either virbr0 or br0 created manually.
