I have emerged virt-manager and everything went fine.
BUT: there is no usable vnc or spice display
The screen is simply frozen to a former state, no keys, nothing.
I can send keys, e.g CTRL+ALT+DEKLETE and the image restarts but then I can see GRUB booting and the screen freezes again.
The server seems to be functional, as I can connect to the image via vncviewer. This is a workaround but not satisfying...

I have the exact same problem, and for a long time. I do not remember from what version of Calculate it started. Previously everything worked great. However, SPICE works correctly. I connect through spicec. But you should add video QXL and display SPICE from scratch. Just delete old VNC video and display. Unfortunately it is not very convenient. :(
Note: You must remove the VNC Display and then add the Spice Display ... you can NOT change the VNC Display to a Spice Display as that does not add the extra devices necessary to use spice. (http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Spice-libvirt)
