I am running fedora 15. Trying to do first VM install. Getting the following
error while libvirtd running. Restarted it and still same error...

Error: Virtual Machine Manager Connection Failure
Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.

Libvirt URI is: qemu:///system

Verify that:
 - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started

authentication failed

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 1055, in
    None], flags)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/", line 107, in
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed')
libvirtError: authentication failed

What to do?

With best regards.
