Attempt to manage Fedora 15 KVM Server via Gnome 3 shell

Following bellow is brief exercise managing Gnome 3 Desktop to create Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat KVM and run it in spice session.First of all after “yum update” i verified current “qemu” and “libvirt” status on Fedora 15. Virtualization Group has been selected during initial install.

[root@fedora15 ~]# rpm -qa |grep qemu
qemu-common-0.14.0-7.fc15.x86_64
qemu-kvm-0.14.0-7.fc15.x86_64
qemu-img-0.14.0-7.fc15.x86_64
qemu-system-x86-0.14.0-7.fc15.x86_64
gpxe-roms-qemu-1.0.1-4.fc15.noarch

[root@fedora15 ~]# rpm -qa |grep virt
redland-virtuoso-1.0.12-3.fc15.x86_64
virtuoso-opensource-6.1.2-3.fc15.x86_64
python-virtkey-0.50-9.fc15.x86_64
libvirt-0.8.8-4.fc15.x86_64
virt-manager-0.8.7-2.fc15.noarch
python-virtinst-0.500.6-1.fc15.noarch
virt-viewer-0.3.1-1.fc15.x86_64
libvirt-python-0.8.8-4.fc15.x86_64
libvirt-client-0.8.8-4.fc15.x86_64

Then added Virt-Manager to favourites to avoid several mouse clicks at every start up :-
