[et-mgmt-tools] KVM libvirt virt-manager failing to request root password



Hello,

I'm having trouble creating new VM's on Mandriva One 2009.1.

The problem seems to be that the Virtual Machine Manager does not request the root password and as a result I am unable to create new VMs.

I've attached a copy of the relevant virt-manager log file with my comments added.

Can you advise me how to proceed?

Many thanks,
RichH

Hello,

Iḿ trying to setup a virtual machine on Mandriva One 2009.1 running on an
Intel Core2 Duo CPU E6850. Iḿ using KVM, qemu, libvirt and virt-manager 
from Mandriva’s repositories.

When I start the Virtual Machine Manager from Tools - Emulators it
already has a localhost with ID qemu and Status Active (RO).

Double clicking on the localhost does nothing. My understanding is 
that it should ask for the root password at this stage. Clicking on
the ´New' button brings up a New VM window ready to accept a name for the new VM,
but the choice of how to install the operating system is greyed out as are the
Forward and Back arrows.


By way of preparation I followed Frederik´s blog at
http://artipc10.vub.ac.be/wordpress/mandriva/using-kvm-on-mandriva-20090.html

In the file /etc/sysconfig/udev_net I have added virbr* and vnet* to the 
BLACKLIST_ALL line.
I installed the kvm, qemu and virt-manager packages.
The libvirtd service is running.
I started the Virtual Machine Manager from Tools – Emulators. 

Frederik says ¨Choose File – Add Connection and set up a Local QEMU connection.¨
The local qemeu connection was already made but it is in read only status.

Frederik says ¨Double click on the localhost/qemu connection in the virtual machine manager, 
and enter your root password.¨
Double clicking doesn´t provide an opportunity to enter the root password.

Frederik says ¨You can now create new virtual machines by clicking on the New button.¨
I can´t!!


I´ve attached part of the virt-manager.log file which appears to show that
an error occurs at the point where an attempt is made to get the root password ie.
´Doing policykit for org.libvirt.unix.manage´


Are you able to advise me if perhaps I have a file missing or need to configure something
differently in Mandriva?

Many thanks,
RichH
