Description of problem:

Installed kvm and virt-manager using the instructions found here:

Using virt-manager in an attempt to create an XP VM, I get to the final configuration step and when I press OK, i get the following error:

Unable to complete install '<type 'exceptions.UnboundLocalError'> local variable 'verr' referenced before assignment
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 722, in do_install

    "connection: %s" % (self.path, verr))
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'verr' referenced before assignment

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

LSB Version:	:core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:core-3.2-ia32:core-3.2-noarch:desktop-3.1-ia32:desktop-3.1-noarch:desktop-3.2-ia32:desktop-3.2-noarch
Distributor ID:	Fedora
Description:	Fedora release 9.92 (Rawhide)
Release:	9.92
Codename:	Rawhide

Linux Kernel


Steps to Reproduce:
$ su -
$ yum install kvm qemu virt-manager
$ virt-manager
(Enter Password)
New VM - Default/ WinXP/4G HDD/512RAM/1CPU
OK -> Error: Unable to complete install '<type 'exceptions.UnboundLocalError'> local variable 'verr' referenced before assignment

Actual results:

Unable to complete install '<type 'exceptions.UnboundLocalError'> local variable 'verr' referenced before assignment

Expected results:
VM Creation

I would like to know if I missed a step in setup or if this is in fact a bug. I do not see any groups relating to virtualization. Looking at some instructions I used when installing an older version of virt-manager on Ubuntu, I had to  also install package 'vde2' and add myself to the groups kvm, libvirtd and vde2-net.

Hi, this is already fixed with the latest python-virtinst version in rawhide. Please see the bug this will be duped as.
