Description Joseph Shraibman 2009-04-07 20:16:44 EDT
Description of problem:
After I run the new machine wizard (or startup a previously created vm) virt-manager runs launches qemu, but to see the exact command line it uses I have to use ps.  If there is some error that keeps qemu from starting there is no process hanging out for me run ps on.  virt-manager should at least put the command it runs in the log file.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2009-04-08 06:28:04 EDT
virt-manager doesn't launch QEMU, or create its command line so there's nothing for it to log.  virt-manager uses libvirt and passes an XML description of the guest, which libvirt then turns into a command line. virt-manager already logs the XML description. libvirt itself will log the QEMU command line in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$NAME.log  should you need to see what it ran
