Ahhhhhhh.... Thanks a lot.

It would be more idiots-proof :)

you have to do some additional libvirtd configuration for ssh transport
usage.

However it is running:
[root acacia ~]# service libvirtd start
Lancement du service libvirtd :                                 [  OK  ]
[root acacia ~]# LC_ALL=C virsh -c xen:/// list
libvir: Remote error : No such file or directory
libvir: warning : Failed to find the network: Is the daemon running ?
 Id Name                 State

  2 cocktail             blocked
  3 mojito               blocked

[root acacia ~]# service libvirtd status
libvirtd (pid 19102) est en cours d'exécution...
