# with Xen I got this when trying to connect my local # default machine. # Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'xen:///' # and with Qemu I got this when trying to connect my # local default machine. # Unable to open connection to hypervisor 'qemu:///'
A few things needed to be installed for qemu to get this working properly so you can define and install a new virtual machine:
# Standard Virtulization packages in the group which # once installed will get you to the same error messages # above once you try to connect your local machine in # the Virtual Machine Manager. # $ yum groupinstall 'Virtualization' # now we need some qemu stuff: # $ yum install qemu qemu-launcher virt-manager virt-mem
After this I could connect to my local machine (qemu:///system) using the Virtual Machine Manager.
