Hmm, did you remove the kernl-xen & xen RPMs that come with RHEL 5 before
installing the custom xen-unstable code ? In general its neccessary to
have perfectly matched versions of the hypervisor, kernel & userspace.
Also, did you install xen-unstable into regular /usr, or into a different
directory prefix ?  libvirt assumes it is in /usr when looking for the
various control sockets to xend, xenstored, etc

strace virsh list

would be useful info. I suspect its failing to open one of the Xen daemon
sockets. Until virsh list works, virt-install definitely won't.

Dan.
