Bug Description

Binary package hint: virt-manager

When trying to create a new VM using a network install, the 'Create a new virtual machine' wizard will crash after clicking 'Forward' on Step 2 of 5.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 1069, in validate
    return self.validate_install_page(revalidate=False)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 1202, in validate_install_page
    self.conn, path)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 446, in check_path_search_for_qemu
    broken_paths = VirtualDisk.check_path_search_for_user(conn.vmm, path, user)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/virtinst/", line 228, in check_path_search_for_user
    if not _is_dir_searchable(uid, username, dirname):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/virtinst/", line 104, in _is_dir_searchable
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 623, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 1128, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

The issue here is that tries to call `getfacl` and throws an OSError if the package acl is not installed.

Either virt-manager package needs the acl package as a dependency or virt-manager needs to be able to handle get/setfacl not being installed.
