What libvirt version are you using? Description requires at least libvirt 0.7.2. Are you making sure to hit the 'Apply' button after updating the desc? Is this Xen or KVM?

Doh!! Was using 0.7.1, now upgraded to latest 0.8.1 and all is OK. But, perhaps, virt-manager could check for a compatible libvirt in the same way as it checks for virtinst - no prizes for guessing how I know it performs that check. ;) Thanks for your (prompt) help.
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2010-06-11 14:11:52 UTC
In order to check for proper support, we really need libvirt to give us fine grained info about what it supports for each driver. There are other bugs floating around that are basically tracking that. Closing this as NOTABUG.
