Severity: Normal

When using virt-manager and trying to install new machine (local libvirt), it
says that I have to be root to do that, which is bogus as it comunicates with
libvirt and my local permisions doesn't matter, libvirtd permisions do.

I rememebered that in fact in other distribution it worked well, so I branched
it in obs, droped two SUSE specific patches (virtman-virtinstall.diff and
virtman-vminstall.diff) and it works again.

So please, make vm-instll work for non-root users again.
