[virt-tools-list] Provision through virt-manager not supported on para-virtualized Xen?



Hi all,

I was setting up libvirt and virt-manager for managing Xen VMs. But
when I hit "New" in virt-manager to provision a new VM, virt-manager
gives me the error: "No install options available for this
connection."

The hypervisor being used is para-virtualized Xen, running on Debian Squeeze.

libvirtd (libvirt) 0.8.3

I manage the VMs using my local laptop, running latest Archlinux and
latest virt-manager.

blackie% uname -a
Linux blackie 3.2.2-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jan 26 08:40:20 CET 2012
x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6670 @ 2.20GHz GenuineIntel
GNU/Linux
blackie% libvirtd --version
libvirtd (libvirt) 0.9.9
blackie% virt-manager --version
0.9.0

Another perhaps related issue: when I try to provision through
virt-install, I always run into this:

blackie% virt-install --connect xen+ssh://root lux-002
ERROR    Must be root to create Xen guests
blackie% virt-install --version
0.600.0

Strange enough, since I'm connecting with root identity. It seems that
only with root identity on local machine can I do virt-install... is
this a bug?
