The rpm is not on the dvd. I will try to find it. On other thing, do I need
depency packages as well? Or does this xen src package include all I need?

I will have a go. I'll report back in a while.

That worked indeed, thank you. So finally virt-manager started. But the
virt-manager complains about unable to connect to xen. It says:

"Unable to open a connection to the Xen hypervisor/daemon". Both the Xen host
is booted and the Xen service (xend) is started.
I have the feeling when I fix this, I'm ok with this setup.
