Description Zhouping Liu 2013-10-31 05:27:40 EDT
Description of problem:

ksm.service and ksmtuned.service, which are provided by qemu-kvm-common package, can't be started through systemctl:
[root@hp-dl585g7-01 git_test]# systemctl status ksm.service
   Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
   Active: inactive (dead)

and I found the reason is ksm.service and ksmtuned.service were located in /usr/lib64/systemd/system, not in /lib/systemd/system/ :

[root@hp-dl585g7-01 git_test]# rpm -ql qemu-kvm-common | grep ksm

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@hp-dl585g7-01 git_test]# rpm -q qemu-kvm-common

How reproducible:

ksm.service - Kernel Samepage Merging
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ksm.service; disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
