I have a problem with virt-manager: I'm trying to start a freebsd on
a power8 IBM machine running IBM KVM. I can connect just fine, set all
my parameters, switch the machine on or off (though it won't boot, but
that's another problrm). When try to connect via the embedded VNC to
the console of my freebsd guest I get an error message saying:

Error connecting to graphical console:
Object constructor cannot be used to create instances of a subclass

I'm running xfce4 on a freebsd 10 (my uname -a says:
FreeBSD mordeus 10.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p6 #0: Tue Feb 24 19:00:21

the virtmanager is a 1.1.0 installed via "pkg install".

Do I need a different version?

Thanks to all,
