Heh, I'm hesitant to ask now, in case it's another instance of me
failing to read, but... :)

When I first start virt-manager, I get an error/warning saying that
'qemu-kvm' should be installed.

I haven't seen this error on my system.

I realize this isn't important, as we're
running Xen, but I wanted to try to resolve it just the same. So I tried
to install qemu-kvm from the rebuilt qemu RPMs made earlier in the
tutorial. This led to a requirement I've not been able to meet:

rpm -ivh rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/qemu-system-x86-0.12.5-1.el6.x86_64.rpm \
error: Failed dependencies:
        seabios-bin is needed by qemu-system-x86-2:0.12.5-1.el6.x86_64
yum provides \*/seabios-bin
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
No Matches found

I don't think you should install those rpms, since RHEL6 already
has kvm included.

You need to only install the additional "qemu-common" rpm,
since that provides the stuff that Xen rpm depends on.

Indeed. More than anything, I am concerned that customers might see the error and worry. I know it doesn't effect Xen at all. :)

Well, I'll move on then. I now need to get DRBD compiled against this kernel. Thank you again.
