This seems fishy. Have you tried restarting libvirtd using systemctl
after your earlier attempt with service and chkconfig? What does
systemctl with the status and stop|start commands say?

This doesn't seem like an SELinux issue to me. You would be receiving
sealerts otherwise.

I'm sorry I can't give more hints, I don't have access to an F15
machine at the moment. That said, if all else fails running virsh
instead of the gui as root should be fine. Have you tried that? When I
used it the last time (about a year back) virsh seemed like a very
powerful cli frontend to libvirt.
