Virt-manager cannot connect to local hypervisor qemu:///system



Hi guys,

I have huge problem with virt-manager as it displays errors below [1].
Problem happened after I upgraded in quick succession from F10 to F11 and
then to F12. If I do yum update, it says "No Packages marked for Update" -
so I'm pretty sure my system is up-to-date F12.

My libvirt is running:
root 8030 1 0 10:34 ? 00:00:00 libvirtd --daemon
However my polkit agent is not running [2]. (not sure if it is a must)

I have two virutal machines defined under qemu-kvm and one is running fine
and one is not. Without virt-manager I'm unable to investigate the problem.
Is there any other way how can I get inside my running virtual machine (ssh
does not work)?

I'm also not sure if my problem is related to this bug or not, but I also
have exactly the same problem as described in this bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581387

And in final here are the packages I use:
Package python-virtinst-0.500.1-2.fc12.noarch already installed and latest
version
Package 2:qemu-kvm-0.11.0-13.fc12.x86_64 already installed and latest
version
Package virt-manager-0.8.2-3.fc12.noarch already installed and latest
version
Package virt-viewer-0.2.0-1.fc12.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package libvirt-0.7.1-15.fc12.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Any help is appreciated, I have web-server running inside non functional
virt-machine and it is down now :(

Thank you in advance,

Jaiv
