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



I built Xen the way the README specifies. So although FC6 is 2.6.18, I
get it built against 2.6.16.29

So uname -a yields 2.6.16.29-xen. I have kernel-xen version as this

My xen version is xen-3.0.3-rc3 src rpm that comes with FC6.

I installed libvirt-0.1.7-2.i386.rpm (again this comes with FC6).

Virt-manager version is 0.2.3 from the About button of the GUI.

I always login as root in these machines.

When I tried it again this time , I still get same results.

Great.

Ok, that's a very odd situation - virsh is saying port 5900 is where the
VNC server is (which sounds plausible), but virt-manager is trying to
connect to 5902 (which sounds like old, hardcoded port behaviour).

Could you tell me what version of kernel-xen, xen, libvirt &
virt-manager
RPMs you have installed in the host.

If you close the console window & re-open it, I assume it still fails
to connect again, with same error message in the logs ?

Ok, that's good - so port 5900 is definitely the desired port.

Oh, are you running 'virsh' and 'virt-manager' as root, or a normal user
?

Regards,
Dan.
