Virtual Machine on Fedora
Be sure to have installed libvirt - yum install @virtualization should get the most necessary item installed.
Next ensure that the virtualisation is started
]$ systemctl start libvirtd
If needed enable the libvirtd if you want it to be started at every boot
]$ systenctl enable libvirtd.service
When installing a new virtual machine do ensure that it runs on the kvm virtualisation, not the qemu - qemu is an emulator and run very slow.
Notice the Hypervisor
I have had some trouble accessing the network from the virtuals.
I found these instructions and performed as shown below while logged in as standard user:
]$ virsh net-list --all Name State Autostart ----------------------------------------- default active yes ]$ virsh net-define /usr/share/libvirt/networks/default.xml Network default defined from /usr/share/libvirt/networks/default.xml ]$ virsh net-autostart default Network default marked as autostarted ]$ virsh net-start default Network default started ]$ brctl show bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces virbr0 8000.000000000000 yes
Finally, as root, in /etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf add this line
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
And a reboot to get the networking up running with the new settings.
With two virtuals running I get this:
\source lang="bash"> ]$ brctl show bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces virbr0 8000.fe5400249719 yes vnet0
vnet1 vnet2 vnet3 vnet4 vnet5
