creating a pv guest Ubuntu on a Ubuntu desktop is failing on pv-ops Dom0 kernel

I just installed a pv-ops Dom0 Kernel on a 64 bit non VT machine.
Following instructions here
for 64 bit Ubuntu 10.04

apt-get install bcc bin86 gawk bridge-utils iproute libcurl3
libcurl4-openssl-dev bzip2 module-init-tools transfig tgif texinfo
texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-recommended texlive-fonts-extra
texlive-fonts-recommended pciutils-dev mercurial build-essential make
gcc libc6-dev zlib1g-dev python python-dev python-twisted
libncurses5-dev patch libvncserver-dev libsdl-dev libjpeg62-dev iasl
libbz2-dev e2fslibs-dev git-core uuid-dev ocaml libx11-dev bison flex

apt-get install gcc-multilib
apt-get install xz-utils

make xen
make tools
make install-xen
make install-tools PYTHON_PREFIX_ARG=

I did not do make install-stubdom.

It is a Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 amd64 bit version.
Then as  mentioned here on this guide
(I did not follow the above guide strictly)

Commented out (xend-unix-server yes) in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp ,
here is my xend-config.sxp
Then  exported variable  VIRSH_DEFAULT_CONNECT_URI=”xen:///”
in root’s .bashrc.
Then :-
# apt-get install ubuntu-virt-server ubuntu-virt-mgmt

Now when I open virt-manager the option to install from Local ISO or
PXE are greyed out.
virt-manager version is 0.8.2

virsh version shows following

Compiled against library: libvir 0.7.5
Using library: libvir 0.7.5
Using API: QEMU 0.7.5
Running hypervisor: QEMU 0.12.3

Can above output be some kind of source to several existing problems?

Though I am able to boot to pv-ops Dom0 kernel and xm info output confirms that.

So this is the error this time I got.Since my machine is non VT 64 bit
so I feel I will be able to run only 32 bit hvm or pvm guests.I am
trying 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04 pv guest.
Let me know if you think there any thing is wrong.
I have in roots .bashrc as you said
also the line in xend-config.sxp
is uncommented.

but after all this creation of a PV DomU (OS Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit) on a
64 bit Ubuntu 10.04 on a non VT 64 bit machine is failing.
Let me know if some one has any clue about it?
I am trying it on pv-ops Dom0 kernel
