Description of problem:

When I create virtual machine I get this error msg:
Unable to complete install '<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'>
virDomainCreateLinux() failed internal error QEMU quit during console startup
qemu: could not open disk image /home/kamil/debian2.img

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 651, in do_install
    dom = guest.start_install(False, meter = meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 845, in
    return self._do_install(consolecb, meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 866, in
    self.domain = self.conn.createLinux(install_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 833, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: virDomainCreateLinux() failed internal error QEMU quit during
console startup
qemu: could not open disk image /home/kamil/debian2.img


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

This same result I have in any virtual system (qemu, kqemu, kvm)
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2008-05-19 10:34:25 EDT
If you have SELinux enabled, it is probably dieing because the disk image is not
in the required location. Try again using /var/lib/libvirt/images  as the
location.  A forthcoming update will make this the default directory in
virt-manager file dialog
Comment 2 Kamil Pawlowski 2008-05-19 10:48:46 EDT
Yeah, this helps. Anyway I don't get any warning in SELinux tool and any warning
when I create virtual system using virt-manager, one of them should help people
like me
