Doesn't let me continue from first page of new VM assistant.

Uh, Jon?

version number, ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log, what exactly do you mean by "doesn't let me" etc.?

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Reporting_virtualization_bugs

It's working fine for me here with virt-manager-0.8.0-1.fc12.noarch

Okay, I guess the problem is that you don't have qemu-kvm installed

  ValueError: Host does not support any virtualization options 

But virt-manager should handle this a lot better

bug #513494 has some longer term ideas

In the mean time, though, virt-manager should at least give the user some sort of indication what is wrong
Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2009-09-29 15:47:26 EDT
The error message is set as the tooltip for the grayed out 'install' section. This is confusing, so I changed it to hide the install options and display the error in a label. This is fixed in virt-manager-0.8.0-6.fc12.
