RE: [Fedora-xen] virt-manager gives "The console is currently unavailable" in FC6

I had a typo in my previous message.

I see no errors in xend.log and xend-debug.log.

But I do have qemu*log messages. For my last problem, I only see the

This basically means that virt-manager was unable to successfully
to the VNC server which exports the guest framebuffer / console. Since
you say this is with fully virt, it probably means that the qemu-dm
failed to startup correctly - since VNC itself rarely fails I imagine
other bit of the guest config broke - network / disk setup being most

What are the errors you see - they may well help diagnose the problem
you are encountering ? Also check for /var/log/xen/qemu-dm*.log for
info about the fully-virt device model startup
