Which distro are you using?  Did you self-build libvirt?

This might be a case of virsh picking up a different default URI, based
on what support you built into libvirt.

Try 'virsh uri' to see what your default URI is.  If it is not
'qemu:///system', then that explains your symptoms, and using 'virsh -c
qemu:///system list --all' will restore your listing abilities.  You can
export VIRSH_DEFAULT_CONNECT_URI so you don't have to use virsh -c every

The versions you have listed should be compatible (there was an issue
where older libvirt didn't like the newer qemu 1.0 versioning scheme,
but that has been fixed).

That's a different executable...

...than what you are testing here.  It may be that you are telling
libvirt to use the wrong binary, and that might be the source of your
error message.

Also, you may want to check out the troubleshooting wiki page, to see if
anything there helps your situation (and if not, feel free to add a page
as we figure out what's happening for you):
