Unable to use Virtual Machine Manager on F11

I am trying to use Virtual Machine Manager on F11 and have the following error :

Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu:///system':
<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> unable to connect to '/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock': No such file or directory
None

I tried to yum install libvirt but it says it is the latest.
I have also checked that i have the latest qemu-kvm virt-manager virt-viewer python-virtinst.

I understand that the error msg says that it is unable to find that certain file, libvirt-sock, and i dun think i have it either.

What should i do?

Don't know a lot about qemu but I bet you need to reboot after installing the program. Have you done that yet?
