           Summary: XEND dies with threading.py errors
           Product: Xen
           Version: 2.0
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux-2.6
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Hypervisor
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: jim.houchin@xxxxxxxxx

Hi.  I am having problems installing XEN.  The problem I am getting is that the 
xend daemon fails with the following message:

root@localhost ~ # /etc/init.d/xend 
Exception in thread Watcher:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/threading.py", line 442, in __bootstrap
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/threading.py", line 422, in run
    self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/xenstore/xswatch.py", line 
45, in watchMain
    cls.xs = xs.open()
RuntimeError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

My OS is Gentoo v2005.1.  The hardware is a Penguin 2100 with 4 P4 XEON EMT64 
processors and 4GB of RAM with a 3Ware SATA RAID contoller and Intel E1000 NIcS.

I have tried the following installation methods:

 1) XEN and XEN-SOURCES from Gentoo portage tree.  - SAME ERROR

 2) Downloaded the latest stable source distributions from your site. (pulled 
the  latest changes down with hg clone command) - SAME ERROR

I have followed the instructions in you user documents as well as the Gentoo 
XEN wiki.

The OS is installed as x86 ay this time.  I have upgraded all software on the 
system to the lastest version.

I cannot think of anything else to try at this point.  I have seen similar bug 
reports that appear to have been cleared by uprading to the latest distribution 
but this has not worked for me.  Is there something I am missing or is there a 
pointer you can give me to correct this problem?   I would be happy to send any 
information you need.

Thanks in advance, Jim
