I'm trying to create a new domU on my machine, using XEN. Seems that I set up everything correctly, but in the end when it tries to create the domain, it gives me the error: Unable to complete install: 'internal error libxenlight failed to create new domain 'centos66''

why is that?

First be sure that SELinux is not blocking xen behavior by turning it off temporally

sudo setenforce disable

I had this problem before, but I think it's already patched, update first

If it doesn't fix it, as a temporal fix I use xend instead of libxl driver it seems it's bugged as pointed here.

sudo service xend start

And to enable the service each time you boot

sudo service xend enable

I tried sudo setenforce disable -- which doesn't work (usage prompt given), so I figured "sudo setenforce 0" would be the trick. That didn't work (I still get the same error when trying to create a vm with virt-manager. ... I tried sudo service xend start; I still get the same error when trying to create a vm with virt-manager. I'm guessing I might need to create the vm without using virt-manager? Is there a way to specify that virt-manager should use xend?
