/dev/vhost-net only accessible by root
Last modified: 2013-10-31 17:08:22 EDT
/dev/vhost-net, which is necessary for decent network performance in qemu/kvm, is only accessible by root. By default it is owned by root and gets 0600 rights.
I would expect /dev/vhost-net to be owned by group kvm or qemu and group-read/writable.
Adding a udev rule such as
SUBSYSTEM=="misc", KERNEL=="vhost-net", GROUP="kvm", MODE="0660"
does not work for me.
Michael, is this safe to do? /dev/kvm is already non-root
I think root-only is a better default. What exactly happens when you add the udev rule?
No response, closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA (and sounds like enabling for non-root isn't recommended anyways)
