Please provide ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log, and the output of 'virsh capabilities' for xen and kvm.

virt-manager.log for kvm

I retest this issue on Xen, but it cannot be reproduced:(. So I caught the log on kvm, the output of 'virsh capabilities' for kvm:


      <cells num='1'>
        <cell id='0'>
          <cpus num='2'>
            <cpu id='0'/>
            <cpu id='1'/>

    <arch name='i686'>
      <domain type='qemu'>
      <acpi default='on' toggle='yes'/>
      <apic default='on' toggle='no'/>

    <arch name='ppc'>
      <domain type='qemu'>

What RPM is providing those QEMU binaries ? The emulators should not be in any of the RHEL-5 trees AFAIK. Can you check what's installed and provide the output of

 rpm -qf /usr/bin/qemu
 rpm -qf /usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc
 rpm -q qemu
 rpm -q kvm

Actually, this bug was reported on rhel-5.3 at that time. I retest this issue with the latest build on rhel-5.4, it's no longer reproduced. So I think it can be closed.

[root@dhcp-66-70-85 ~]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/qemu
error: file /usr/bin/qemu: No such file or directory
[root@dhcp-66-70-85 ~]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc
error: file /usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc: No such file or directory
[root@dhcp-66-70-85 ~]# rpm -q qemu
package qemu is not installed
[root@dhcp-66-70-85 ~]# rpm -q kvm
