It seems now the packages installed OK using yum aswell. I guess you or someone refreshed the repo :)

Anyway, here's something I noticed while testing xend bits:

# systemctl enable xend.service
xend.service is not a native service, redirecting to /sbin/chkconfig.
Executing /sbin/chkconfig xend on
The unit files have no [Install] section. They are not meant to be enabled
using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:
1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
   .wants/ or .requires/ directory.
2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
   a requirement dependency on it.
3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
   D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).

"systemctl start xend.service" works OK though.. and after that xm works too.
