Hi David,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I took the rpm from Would you recommend to compile it ?

Here is the dmesg output when i try to start a domU.

device vif1.0 entered promiscuous mode
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): vif1.0: link is not ready
Ebtables v2.0 registered
xenbr1: port 3(vif1.0) entering disabled state
device vif1.0 left promiscuous mode
xenbr1: port 3(vif1.0) entering disabled state

Does this make any sense ?

Thanks for the help.
