Then I believe this should be fixed: users should be able to run
libvirtd without brctl installed. I can still use QEMU/KVM before on
my machine without it, so I find no reason why it stop working now
with virt-install.

OK, now I install bridge-utils, and run libvirtd. After that, I tried
virt-install, but still got error like below:

# virt-install -c qemu:///system --name jeos2 --ram 500 --file
img.jeos2  --cdrom jeos-8.04.1-jeos-i386.iso
Fri, 15 Aug 2008 19:42:56 ERROR    virConnectOpen() failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/virt-install", line 496, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/bin/virt-install", line 345, in main
    conn = cli.getConnection(options.connect)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/cli.py", line 92, in
getConnection
    return libvirt.open(connect)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 139, in open
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpen() failed')
libvirtError: virConnectOpen() failed


How to fix this now?

Thanks a lot,
Jun
