So ive been trying to run a windows vm with KVM and QEMU under linux Mint tesa 19.1. After a bit of trouble managed to VFIO one of my two similar GPUs. But now i have the problem that the virt-manager program cant start because libvirtd isnt running.
Ive run this
sudo apt install qemu-kvm qemu-utils seabios ovmf hugepages cpu-checker
sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin bridge-utils virt-manager qemu virt-viewer spice-vdagent
but when i start virt-manager, even with sudo, it says the libvirtd isnt online.
Starting the service manualy with
sudo service libvirtd start
seems to just start it and kill it.
I have no ideea what the heck is wrong and how i can fix it.
I used this guide here to VFIO one of two similar GPUs i have
Im not sure if this broke anything, but i simply have no ideea what to do next. This is transforming into a major pain in the arse. Getting a VM to run.
