Description Cole Robinson 2013-03-21 20:34:53 UTC
virt-manager first run should install libvirt-daemon-kvm, not libvirt-daemon-qemu, which pulls in all the not-commonly-used system emulators.

This will fail on arm though since libvirt-daemon-kvm isn't available there. Maybe we should just try kvm for x86 and qemu otherwise.

Comment 1 Daniel Berrangé 2013-03-22 10:22:53 UTC
NB Arm may well have KVM in F19, but if not, it will definitely have it in F20.

I'd recommend attempting to install libvirt-daemon-kvm, and if packagekit reports that the package is not available, automatically fallback to try libvirt-daemon-qemu. Don't try to second guess existance of a -kvm package based on arch.

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2013-04-01 10:19:47 UTC
I'm just gonna make the simple change of trying to pull in libvirt-daemon-kvm and if anyone complains about lack of arm support we can fix it then.
