That's when I run the command 'virt-install'

virt-install --connect=qemu:///system --name=mymachine --ram=4096 --vcpus=2 --check-cpu --os-type=ubuntu --vnc --accelerate --disk=/home/myuser/mymachine/mymachine.qcow2,sparse=true --network=bridge:br0

Things I've already checked out:

  • kvm modprobe is running (checked with lsmod | grep kvm )
  • Virtualization is enabled on my bios
  • The flag --hvm

More info:

  • Hardware: HP laptop with Intel CPU I5
  • OS: Manjaro 20.04 (arch)
  • Package: libvirt from community

Virtualbox runs fine so I'm a bit puzzled here. Also, on my other computer the command runs correctly. Any idea about what could be going on?



sudo pacman -S qemu ebtables iptables dnsmasq
sudo sudo systemctl restart libvirtd
