I did try using differnt URIs but did not get this working. I could not
see any machines in --all option
$ type virsh
virsh is aliased to `virsh --connect qemu:///system'

I am still seeing issues. I just downloaded the git version and the
qemu-kvm-1.0 but when compiled did not work
Did not work is in the sense as told above

The  virsh capabilities does  not show hvm in the list

Hah I forgot to tell  kvm is linked to qemu-system-x86_64
I just went back to libvirt 0.9.1 with qemu-kvm 0.14.1 and thingss are
back to normal ; atleast in working condition
The main reason I wanted to move to newer versions is that I wanted to
use USB 2.0 rather than forced to use USB1.0 in case of the versions
of qemu and libvirt i specified.
Since this is a production system I think I have to create a backup
system and try it out to see if I am able to get this working ...
