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


Actually, I have exactly the same problem with FC6 for some days now.
Concerning Daniel's questions (for me) :

- qemu process : ok
- virsh dump : ok but why port=-1 ?
<graphics type='vnc' port='-1'/>
- virt-manager log :
Unable to activate console socket.gaierror (-2, 'Nom ou service inconnu')
(detail is given below).

What strange is, it is that everything worked well at beginning.
I have not made system modifications or so. It's the third time that I have to install FC6.

It would be really great if you have an idea about what is happening.
Thanks for your help

Ok, that's good - can you see if there is a qemu-dm process running,

  ps -auxfww | grep qemu-dm

Looks reasonable. Can you see if there is a '<graphics>' block
in the XML  when you run

  'virsh dumpxml  <domain name>'

For the domain that you failed to get a console on. Also make sure that
in the /etc/xen/<domain name> there is a 'vnc=1' config option. Finally,
take a look at /root/.virt-manager/virt- manager.log to see if there's
any errors reported.
