Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-06-09 08:21:29 UTC
This is what I get with the new libvirt

amd64box ago # LC_ALL="C" virsh start x86
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: no valid connection
error: no connection driver available for (null)
error: Failed to reconnect to the hypervisor

the downgrade to the stable solves for me.

Comment 1 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-06-09 18:14:44 UTC
you don't have the driver built for what you are attempting to do. Include USE flags for the version you are having this issue with and include your log files. e.g. /var/log/libvirt/libvirtd.log and /var/log/libvirt/$driver/x86.log

I honestly expect better bug reports from developers, especially arch team members.
Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-06-09 18:46:56 UTC
Sorry, it was a report in a hurry.

libvirtd.log says:

2013-06-09 18:37:54.553+0000: 3929: error : virDriverLoadModule:78 : failed to load module /usr/lib64/libvirt/connection-driver/ /usr/lib64/libvirt/connection-driver/ undefined symbol: VIR_STRDUP

This happens after I start the service. There aren't any other logs.

[ebuild   R    ] app-emulation/libvirt-  USE="caps libvirtd macvtap nls policykit python qemu udev vepa -audit -avahi -firewalld -fuse -iscsi -lvm -lxc -nfs -numa -openvz -parted -pcap -phyp -rbd -sasl (-selinux) -systemd -uml -virt-network -virtualbox -xen"

1.0.6 works fine here.
Comment 3 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-06-09 22:43:02 UTC
Fixed in revbump
