Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2010-07-06 13:23:51 EDT
Please provide the actual error messages received.  libvirt has no need for any tunctl program as it opens /dev/net/tun directly, and this device node is automatically created by udev on all my RHEL6 systems.
Comment 3 ritz 2010-07-08 07:32:01 EDT
I have not been able to reproduce this issue, after uninstalling tunctl. Odd. It was related with unable to create tap device, using qemu.
Comment 4 Dave Allan 2010-07-09 12:34:18 EDT
Since the problem is now not reproducible, I'm going to close this BZ, but of course please reopen if you are able to reproduce it.
