David-is this really a qemu issue or should this be reassigned to selinux-targeted-policy?

Where did you locate your disk images ? As of Fedora 9, if you are running with SELinux enabled & enforcing, disk images need to be located under /var/lib/libvirt/images/

(In reply to comment #5) > Where did you locate your disk images ? > > As of Fedora 9, if you are running with SELinux enabled & enforcing, disk images > need to be located under /var/lib/libvirt/images/ I think this might be the problem. I tried installing WinXP from the CD under qemu-kvm and it worked fine. Then I repeated the installation copying the iso to my home directory and virt-manager failed starting the virtual machine because SELinux forbids access to the iso image. I tried changing the context of the iso image as suggested by the troubleshooter but it didn't work. I had to change SELinux to permissive mode temporarily while doing the installation.

Missing info from reporter, closing
Comment 8 William Lovaton 2009-04-20 08:42:58 EDT
Mmmm, I promise I'll try this on my updated Fedora 10 laptop and post a comment here. But, why images need to be located in /var/lib/libvirt/images/? can't a mortal user use his home directory? I think Qemu/KVM should work without root privileges.
