        I solved the problem I was having with the Virtual Machine Manager not 
showing guests,
running or not. I updated libvirt to 0.9.1 from the default CentOS 5.6 one.

libvirtd fails a test during the build, The attached trivial patch removes the 
test. The test fails because of CentOS using an old version of libxml2.

I rebuilt with:

rpmbuild -bb --define='rhel 5' libvirt.spec

I've got a Ubuntu 10.04 guest running on CentOS now.

Hopefully this will help someone. ( or me when I forget what I did! )
