A few days ago I upgraded to Fedora22 and does not appear in virt-manager option lxc connection. Virt-manager showed them in Fedora21 not remember having to do anything special. Is it normal for version change? What am I missing?

It's not important, but it is convenient and fast to perform some remote management tasks using lxc + ssh.

if it's the first thing I checked and i have installed libvirtd-daemon-lxc-1.2.13 and libvirtd is active and running.

That is correct but the problem continues.


Virt-manager running the option --connect executed properly what I need, then it is a matter of marking the option to auto-connect to the details of the connection.

Just to make that clear, the workaround is:

virt-manager --connect lxc://

then enable Autoconnect for the LXC connection. Works fine here on Fedora 22.

Review that you have installed libvirt-daemon-lxc and make sure libvirtd is started if not

sudo dnf install libvirt-daemon-lxc.

sudo systemctl restart libvirtd
