libvir: QEMU error : out of memory

Has anyone seen this error in libvirtd?
libvir: QEMU error : out of memory
Whatever it is, I'm pretty sure that's what's keeping my virt-manager from working. There's 12GB of DDR3 on this box, so I really really hope that it's not actually a memory problem. This here is a brand-new whitebox I build just for virtualization on F11. Can anyone here help me make it work?

Edit: This is a 64-bit install. All 12GB are accessible by the OS.

Do you have the PAE or 64 bit kernel installed?

Never underestimate someone with source code, a text editor, and the willingness to completely hose their system.

64 bit. Sorry, I should have included that in the original post.

I am also having this same problem. I am running on a Nahelem EP box with 24GB of DDR 3 ram. I didn't have this issue with an older Xeon system so I am wondering if there is an issue with that.

When trying to use the virt-manager I get an error unable to connect to quem:///system and libvirtd is loaded and running.

This is reported here:


The bug should be fixed by libvirt-0.6.2-15 or later, which you can currently get from updates-testing, with:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update libvirt && service libvirtd restart
