Xen is not KVM.
Your image has the xen_image_t label because its in /var/lib/xen/images
Yes, I always found that location a bit odd, but that's where I was told
to put them
the last time I had similar trouble (i.e. if I didn't put them in
/var/lib/xen/images, they wouldn't
pick up the right context).
By default KVM images live in /var/lib/libvirt/images/ and have
virt_image_t label. Xen probably ought to be allowed to read virt_image_t
and then we should change /var/lib/xen/images/ to also be virt_image_t
and get rid of xen_image_t. It is not nice to have different labels and
locations for different virt technology. So we should make sure everything
is using the generic virt_image_t
That would be simpler, yes.
In the meantime you can either move your images or relabel them to
virT_image_t for use with KVM
Yes, I've relabeled and that seems to have worked for now.
On a related point, will I need to apply virt_image_t to .iso files I'm
