I do an ifconfig but at the last of it there is no bridge name
have a look at it I have installed all the things myself.
As Xen wiki page says the default bridge should be xen-br0 in the last
output of ifconfig it is not there
it is Xen-3.2.1 default name of bridge as they are saying should be
the same as default ethernet interface but that is xen-3.3 read point
number 6.So this is not the exact case with me.Where is the difference
occuring.
Here is
