This means that this is FC6 specific.
I have had successful installations on FC6
Any suggestions/workarounds possible to
install unmodified guest ?
I am in dire need for a solution.

virt-manager gives "The console is currentlyunavailable" in FC6
After a new check, it looks like I have exactly the same problem than your with
the same logs.
I found no solution for the moment as making a new FC6 installation.

Yes there is qemu-dm process running.
I see a line in "virsh dumpxml xen_FC5G1"
<graphics type='vnc' port='5900'/>
>From the log file of virt-manager I have
DEBUG Graphics vnc://localhost:5902
ERROR Unable to activate console socket.error(111,'Connection refused')
In the /etc/xen/xen_FC5G1, I do have vnc=1 and vncunused=1.

Ok, that's good - can you see if there is a qemu-dm process running,
ps -auxfww | grep qemu-dm

Looks reasonable. Can you see if there is a '<graphics>' block
in the XML when you run
'virsh dumpxml <domain name>'
For the domain that you failed to get a console on. Also make sure that
in the /etc/xen/<domain name> there is a 'vnc=1' config option. Finally,
take a look at /root/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log to see if there's
any errors reported.
