Description Russell Strong 2009-04-24 18:40:29 EDT
Description of problem:

Installed Virtuallisation with yum groupinstall Virtuallisation

after a reboot ( a day later ) I started virt-manager and get the following

Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu:///system':
<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> could not connect to qemu:///system

I checked the status of libvirtd.  It was running.
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2009-04-27 09:29:30 EDT
This is likely due to the Virtualization group not pulling in qemu anymore:


If you 'yum install qemu' and reboot, does it fix the issue?
Comment 2 Russell Strong 2009-04-28 05:21:51 EDT
yes, that has fixed it.  Thanks.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-04-28 09:57:59 EDT
Fixed by qemu-0.10-15.fc11 which provides a qemu-kvm meta package which is pulled in by comps.

* Fri Apr 27 2009 Glauber Costa <glommer@redhat.com> - 2:0.10-15
- provide qemu-kvm as a metapackage

dist-f11 tag request here https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/1666
Comment 5 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-01 08:20:01 EDT
Really fixed by qemu-0.10-16.fc11

* Fri May  1 2009 Mark McLoughlin <markmc@redhat.com> - 2:0.10-16
- Really provide qemu-kvm as a metapackage

We had forgotten to provide a %files section for the meta package, so it didn't actually get created.

I try to above comments : 'yum install qemu' and reboot.
but I met the same problem.
Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu:///system':
<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> could not connect to qemu:///system

I checked the status of libvirtd.  It was running.  

My System Information.

Memory : DDR-III 4GB DDR3 ECC Registered x 6EA
HDD : Serial ATA-II 1TB 7200rpm (32MB) x 4EA

current rpm


How do I get qemu-0.10-16.fc11 rpm ?

If it isn't qemu package version problem, please slove the problem.~~
