Dear all,

Im trying to connet to libvirtd on my local machine, but i only can contact
as root user.

When i run virsh command as root user, all works as expected:

[root at localhost libvirt]# virsh list
 Id Name                 State

When i try to run virsh as user, i get the following errors:

[user at localhost ~]$ virsh list
error: unable to connect to '@/home/user/.libvirt/libvirt-sock', libvirtd
may need to be started: Connection refused
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor

on /var/log/messages, i found a segmentation fault:
Jul 20 02:46:00 localhost kernel: libvirtd[22177]: segfault at 28 ip
0000000000496ca7 sp 00007f72a328bdf8 error 4 in libvirtd[400000+cc000]

on my /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf, i have uncommented these 3 entries:

listen_tls = 0
listen_tcp = 1
auth_tcp = "none"

my system:
Linux localhost #1 SMP Tue Jun 22 15:53:23 WEST 2010
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux   - Mandriva Free 2010

I don't know how to resolve this segmentation fault, and what is the cause.
Any help will be appreciated.
