I am trying to create a KVM server on a (remotely hosted) VPS (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS).
I have installed these packages
sudo apt-get install kvm ubuntu-vm-builder libvirt-bin bridge-utils sudo egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo
This does return VMX (8 times)
INFO: /dev/kvm exists KVM acceleration can be used
However when I run the following command
virsh --connect qemu:///system list --all
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor error: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock': No such file or di
systemctl status libvirtd

I'm pretty much stuck here, the libvirt-sock file isn't there at all.
If anyone would be able to help me out, that would be very much appreciated!
P.S. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the errors but in my /etc/network/interfaces file I've noticed that I have no "eth" interfaces but only "venet" interfaces.
