    Default Problem With KVM

    I tried creating a virtual machine vith KVM.

    In the Virtual Machine Manager, after creating a new connection I am getting the following error

    Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.

    Verify that:
    - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started

    Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu:///session':
    <class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed authentication failed
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 325, in _open_thread
    self.vmm = libvirt.openReadOnly(self.uri)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/", line 144, in openReadOnly
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed')
    libvirtError: virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed authentication failed

    Not sure if there is support for that yet. Howerver, it doesn't look like your libvirtd is running.

    try libvirtd -d
