virt-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: virt-manager

Steps to reproduce:

1. start virt-manager, connect to the 'localhost (System)', then click New
2. enter name of vm eg 'testme' and use local install media, click Forward
3. select an iso to use, with OS type Generic and Version Generic, click Forward
4. leave memory and CPUs as defaults, click Forward
5. enable storage for the VM, but don't allocate all of it now, click Forward
6. Click Advanced options, and choose an architecture, click Finish

While the VM starts, you do not get the VNC window like normal. Instead, you get the following:

Error bringing up domain details: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_driver'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 272, in show_details
    details = vmmDetails(self.get_config(), con.get_vm(uuid), self)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 337, in __init__
    self.update_widget_states(self.vm, self.vm.status())
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 783, in update_widget_states
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 730, in set_migrate_menu
    self.engine.populate_migrate_menu(menu, self.control_vm_migrate)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 578, in populate_migrate_menu
    conns = self.get_available_migrate_hostnames()
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 601, in get_available_migrate_hostnames
    driver = self.windowManager.current_connection().get_driver()
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_driver'

You may have to first delete a VM before the above steps work.

This is a regression over 9.04, which has a different wizard for creating a vm. Tested using qemu/mips.
