Hi folks,

KVM
Virt-manager
host - Debian 5.0

Starting;

Gnome
Applications -> System Tools - Virtual Machine Manager

popup following error;
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 346, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 248, in main
    setup_logging()
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 124, in setup_logging
    os.mkdir(vm_dir)
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/home/satimis/.virt-manager'
~$ ls -al /home/satimis/ | grep virt-manager
Code:
drwxr-xr-x  2 root    root           4096 2009-05-31 06:11 .virt-manager

$ mv /home/satimis/.virt-manager /home/satimis/.virt-manager.old01

Restart
Applications -> System Tools - Virtual Machine Manager

starting GUI virt-manager but without asking for login as root

$ ls -al /home/satimis/ | grep virt-manager
Code:
drwxr-xr-x  2 satimis  satimis        4096 2010-01-31 10:00 .virt-manager

If changing the owner by running
$ sudo chown root:root /home/satimis/.virt-manager

GUI virt-manage can't start with abovementioned warning pop.


Please advise how to fix this problem. I expect with root-password to start GUI virt-manager

TIA
