Libvirt's log file for a virtual machine that is having problems starting none

Description Joonas Sarajärvi 2009-05-08 10:19:28 EDT
Description of problem:

After installing the latest libvirt from rawhide, my virtual machines (all of them KVM based) no longer seem to start. Instead, the libvirt tools tell me that the machine "didn't show up". Virtual machines did work fine a few days ago.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always on this machine

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest updates from Rawhide
2. Try to start a virtual machine with virt-manager or virsh
Actual results:

[root@localhost ~]# virsh start Rawhide0
error: Failed to start domain Rawhide0
error: internal error Domain Rawhide0 didn't show up

[root@localhost ~]#

Expected results:
No errors, virtual machines start normally.

The issue seems to be somehow related to SELinux. It is possible that I just have some files mislabeled. After setenforce 0, my virtual machines seem to work again. They used to work without disabling SELinux, though.
