Description Chris Snook 2008-10-21 10:35:53 EDT
Description of problem:
If dbus-x11 is not installed, virt-manager will throw up a cryptic error suggesting that TCP/IP networking is disabled, and direct the user to gconf documentation, which doesn't make it obvious that dbus-x11 needs to be installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a minimal F10-Snap2 system, with virt-manager but no X or Gnome
2. ssh -X root@system from a system running X
3. Attempt to run virt-manager
Actual results:
A GUI window pops up with a hilariously wrong error message and suggests that the user consult documentation that is unrelated to the real problem.

Expected results:
virt-manager pulls in dbus-x11 automatically as a dependency

Additional info:
Fix is trivial, but the bug is rather baffling to the non-expert, particularly due to the error message.
