Starting freshly build and installed virt-manager from /usr/local/bin/virt-manager and trying to create a new machine does not work, causes the above error message in a box.
virt-manager.build.log (build and install tasks logged)
virt-manager.log (output from ~/.cache/virt-manager/virt-manager.log)
Running the old version via /usr/bin/virt-manager
Needed to combine both logs, as your bugzilla doesnt support more than one attachment.
ok, i think i found the problem myself.
for some reason, the git version of virt-manager doesnt install under /usr/local anymore, but instead overwrites stuff in /usr.
so the version under /usr/bin indeed is the more current one, thats also why it might work.
the version i had under /usr/local was 1.2.1, somewhere around that version, the behaviour of the make install changed.
i dont know if thats a bug or a feature?
The build system was changed a bit in the last release, the default install directory is different. The reason is that things like gsettings schema don't work by default under /usr/local, so the user had to do some extra steps to make it work. Use python setup.py configure --prefix=/usr/local to maintain the old behavior
