1. Did you install both xen & xen-libs ?
I picked xen-3.0.2-23.src.rpm as it was the Xen version supported in FC5.
I did "make world" and "make install". Ofcourse I created the ramdisk images as well. So I did not specifically install xen-libs. Please let me know if I missed any steps.
2. rpm -q --provides xen xen-libs | grep xenstore -- Show ?
I tried this .This shows me nothing. libvirt-0.0.6-1.i386 is the version that is available on the FC5 package/Cds.
My question --- what is the right Xen source for FC5 in x86 and FC6 Test 1 in x86?
From my search, I found they use the same xen-3.0.2-23.src.rpm.
I can pick them and build it. I have been downloading stuff from the right websites. But I still get mismatches like these.
all your help

No, there is absolutely *NO* need to install libvirt when compiling the
Xen RPM - there is no compile time dependancy, and you certainly should
not use --nodeps when installing RPMs.

The version of Xen you installed probably has a newer libxenstore.so
which includes versioning, while the libvirt you installed was linked
against the older non-versioned libxenstore.so. What does
rpm -q --provides xen xen-libs | grep xenstore
BTW, you'll also want libvirt-python RPM
