been trying to get qemu and virt-manager running. However, I'm having some issues.
I followed the wiki on qemu/kvm and virt-manager.
I have polkit and polkit-gnome installed, libvirtd is started.
Whenever I try to open virt-manager, I received the following error:
Unable to connect to libvirt. authentication failed: polkit: polkit\56retains_authorization_after_challenge=1 Authorization requires authentication but no agent is available. Libvirt URI is: qemu:///system Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 1020, in _open_thread self._backend.open(self._do_creds_password) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst/connection.py", line 158, in open open_flags) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 105, in openAuth if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed') libvirtError: authentication failed: polkit: polkit\56retains_authorization_after_challenge=1 Authorization requires authentication but no agent is available.
I'm not sure what to look for.
Any ideas where I should check?
Followed this post:
Which got me running. Hopefully this is the secure way.
