After a "service xencommons start" I tried a "xl list" and received the
following error.

libxl: error: libxl.c:56: libxl_ctx_init  Is xenstored running?
failed to stat /var/run/xenstored.pid: No such file or directory
cannot init xl context

I edited init.d/xenstored:36 and changed

What version of xen is this in ?  In xen-unstable, init.d/xenstored
already talks about xenstored.pid, since 22821:5ce41defa1fa.

It looks like there were files left over from 4.0.x intermixed with newer ones. I don't understand how the older xl wasn't replaced by the newer one. I gutted the system of everything xen and did a xen-4.1.1/install.sh and all the inconsistencies disappeared.

Sorry for the noise,
Mike Wright
