Re: Fedora 11 and Virtual Machine Manager

Hi Gerry,

Hello all,

I have been using qemu-kvm via the virtual machine manger on Fedora 10 and
have had no problems (works great & love it!). I just downloaded and
installed Fedora 11 64 bit on a new server and logged in as a normal user
and started the virtual machine manager. I'm able to connect to the virtual
machine manager, but cant setup any new VM's as I'm connected as Read-Only
(This must be a new feature). How should I go about connecting to VMM
READ-WRITE? Do I need to sudo VMM? Any help would be appreciated!

Since you are using kvm, you need the root password to create a VM. I have faced this once or twice before. When you run virt manager first time after boot, it asks for the password. If you bypass that by any chance it will run unprivileged and you won't be able to create a virtual machine. This is retained until the next time it is started. I don't know how to solve this, so I did a reboot every time I faced this. Maybe this information will help you find out a proper solution.

I might be wrong about this, so someone please correct me if I am wrong.


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
