Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499905
regression - no more kqemu option, qemu instances use -no-kqemu
Last modified: 2010-05-25 11:11:54 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a server that doesnt have VT/AMD-V extensions. Xen would be overkill. I noticed that in version ~0.5 there was a kqemu option but it is no longer available for local or remote domains. when choosing qemu it sends -no-kqemu as a parameter making kqemu not run. kqemu is alot faster than qemu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libvirt (local): 0.6.1
libvirt (remote, without virt extentions): 0.4.0
both hosts have kqemu installed, built and loaded
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get to step 5 of new VM walkthrough
2. no kqemu under "Virt Type"
3. when a qemu instance is run -no-qemu can be seen via 'ps'
2.some way to run kqemu
Is there a kqemu rpm installed, or is it installed by hand? If by rpm, please include the output of 'rpm -ql kqemu'.
Also, provide the output of:
For outputs see #499056.
According to your capabilities output, libvirt isn't finding kqemu, therefore virt-manager doesn't list it as an install option. But your 'ls' output shows /dev/kqemu.
Does 'service libvirtd restart' change the output of 'virsh capabilities | grep kqemu' ?
Re-assigning to libvirt.
Can you confirm Cole's question from comment #3.
