virt-manager can't connect to localhost qemu
Last modified: 2008-08-21 04:14:40 EDT
Description of problem:
virt-manager seems unable to connect to the localhost qemu system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch virt-manager
2. double click on localhost qemu system
Status changes to "connecting" and stays like that for a while, then the window stops redrawing.
A new window with the VMs listed for localhost.
Attaching strace after the window stops redrawing shows:
# strace -f -p 3031
Process 3052 attached with 2 threads - interrupt to quit
[pid 3052] futex(0x214a530, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2, NULL <unfinished ...>
[pid 3031] futex(0x2502b10, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 0, NULL
This was working fine with F9 stable updates, but broke when I updated to rawhide.
virsh based operation still seems to work.
Note also that I'm doing this over VNC.
pygobject is trashing the python interpeter thread state. See bug 458522
