You don't show us your code, you don't show us your data, and you don't show us the error message you get.

For the record, I had no problems using the XPath implementation of XML::LibXML. Accessing an attribute of a root node (or rather, getting the node containing it) would be done using
as the XPath expression. A likely sample could be:
my $query = '/root@foo';
my @nodes = $document->find_nodes($query);
