I've succesfully installed FC6 domU under RHEL5-beta2 dom0 with
virt-manager. I could open
a graphical vnc console from virt-manager with no probs and use domU's
gnome desktop.

After few days of running the guest I've updated it with yum and been
using it mostly
via xm console. Now I tried to use the graphical console, but all
virt-manager was telling
me was: "The console is currently unavailable."

I searched the fc6 logs and saw these messages:

# tail /var/log/messages:

       (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
(EE) No devices detected.

I've tried rebooting both dom0 and domU which has not helped. Is
anyoneone else having these problems? Any ideas how I could solve this

My guest's config looks like this:

name = "fc6test"
memory = "500"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol02,xvda,w',
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:2e:d0:98, bridge=xenbr0', ]
uuid = "df923cb5-5528-6bd5-c129-2a44656e5584"
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'
