When I start the virtual machine manager I get the following error:
Unable to open a connection to the Xen hypervisor/daemon.
Verify that: -A Xen host kernel was booted -The Xen service has been started
Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI ‘xen:///’:
<class ‘libvirt.libvirtError’> virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py”, line 325, in _open_thread
self.vmm = libvirt.openReadOnly(self.uri)
File “/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py”, line 144, in openReadOnly
if ret is None:raise libvirtError(‘virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed’)
libvirtError: virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed
I’ve just setup 11.0 with Xen here getting the same results.
dmesg shows :
/usr/share/virt trap divide error ip:7f69c63c05ac sp:7fffdb0eb9a0 error:0 in libvirt.so.0.4.0[7f69c639f000+5e000]

…but in order to even access Xen, you have to go through YaST, which requires a root logon. When I try to create a machine it reports “Hypervisor is not running.” I’ve an x86_64 and running a Xen kernel.
