libvirtd fails to start
Last modified: 2011-02-04 11:47:28 EST
Description of problem:
the libvirtd service won't start (stock F-13 system).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. libvirtd as root
22:11:40.067: warning : qemudStartup:1150 : Unable to create cgroup for driver: No such device or address
22:11:40.301: warning : lxcStartup:1748 : Unable to create cgroup for driver: No such device or address
22:11:40.320: error : virStateInitialize:890 : Initialization of UML state driver failed
22:11:40.320: error : main:3160 : Driver state initialization failed
22:11:40.321: warning : qemudDispatchSignalEvent:385 : Shutting down on signal 3
selinux in enforcing mode, no AVC denials. i'll be gone for a week without access to this machine, but after that i should be able to answer any questions you may have. sorry about the timing.
also, got this line in /var/log/messages: Jul 26 21:48:25 localhost libvirtd: Could not find keytab file: /etc/libvirt/krb5.tab: No such file or directory
Add the following to /etc/fstab and libvirtd works again:
cgroup /cgroup cgroup cpuset,cpu,cpuacct,memory,devices,freezer,net_cls
I had a similar problem. The reason on my machine was a corrupted qemu binary (some linklib was missing) that libvirt was trying to probe while starting. I believe I found it with
skipping over the iptables errors that libvirt tolerates to fail.
libvirtd has gone back to working for me since I filed this (without any action on my part other than installing updates). go figure.
