With xen 3.0, the parameter "xend-unix-server" must be set to  "yes" in the /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp configuration file for virt-manager and virt-install to work. It is set to "no" by default. Maybe it is the same with xen 3.2.

Hope this helps.

Hi all,

I installed Xen 3.2.1 on FC8 from the source, It is working fine and I
even created a virtual machine, however I cannot use the "Virtual Machine
Manager" it does not even respond and when I try to use virt-install, I
get the message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/sbin/virt-install", line 502, in <module>
 File "/usr/sbin/virt-install", line 345, in main
   conn = cli.getConnection(options.connect)
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/cli.py", line 76, in
   return libvirt.open(connect)
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 135, in open
   if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpen() failed')
libvirtError: virConnectOpen() failed

Thanks In Advance,
