With the patch I attached to  FS#28735  I get this core dump instead:

Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/libvirtd --config /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf -p /var/run/libvirtd.pid'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

confirm the same behaviour
Comment by Evaggelos Balaskas (ebal) - Tuesday, 15 May 2012, 08:50 GMT
Confirmed, this is my debug=4 libvirtd logfile

I did a downgrade and libvirt 0.9.11-2 is working just fine

I put 0.9.11 into community and 0.9.12 into community-testing

I tried to downgrade to Any other versions of libvirt, the result is always a segmentation fault:

[root@bernard bv]# virsh -v
0.9.11
Segmentation fault

Tested both on 32 and 64 bits.
Comment by Sergej Pupykin (sergej) - Thursday, 17 May 2012, 09:48 GMT
please try libvirt-0.9.12-3 and netcf-0.1.9-2
Comment by Bernard Van De Walle (bvandewa) - Thursday, 17 May 2012, 10:11 GMT
