libvirt doesn't notice kvm installation
Last modified: 2009-01-28 12:22:12 EST
Description of problem:
I installed the virtualization group to experiment with kvm, and had problems getting it to work. I eventually tried a reboot and that cleared things up. When a user installs virtualization, they should be prompted for a reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install virtualization
2. try to use it
Virtual machine manager does not offer all the options it should when creating a new virtual machine.
AFAIK, this is just that libvirt doesn't re-poll for qemu-kvm binary; it only does it on startup. See qemudCapsInit()
