Could you include ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log and
/var/log/libvirt/qemu/$guest.log ?

Created attachment 357071 [details]
Comment 3 Eric Paris 2009-08-11 15:50:59 EDT
The guest.log is empty.
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-14 12:55:11 EDT
Here's the interesting bit:

 connect_cdrom produced: 
   <disk type="file" device="cdrom">
      <driver name="file" type=""/>
      <target dev="vda" bus="virtio"/>
      <source file="/var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora-11-x86_64-Live.iso"/>

it should be name="qemu", not name="file"

I'm seeing this here as well, any idea when a fix might land? 

virt-install doesn't seem to have this issue.
