Can't help with figuring out the virt-manager problem. My first steps with 
Xen where with virt-manager, but that's been a long time ago (and it 
worked fine back then). I haven't looked at it since then. You simply 
don't need it, usually you don't want to run any X on a server. 

virt-install works fine, is command-line and you can either have it ask 
for all the parameters or you can provide all of them, so it's a "one 
command" installation.
