Installing Virtual Machines on Arch

Date: 2023-09-27

27 SEP 2023::Note : This doesn't succeed. I ended up using qemu directly and just booted into the virtual machine. I ran into some weird issues.

Install the falling packages:

pacman -Sy libvirt 
pacman -Sy libvirt-qemu 
pacman -Sy polkit 
pacman -Sy virt-manager
pacman -Sy dnsmasq
pacman -Sy dmidecode

Update the user's group:

usermod -a -G libvirt,libvirt-qemu username

Log out and back in to update groups

Start everything up:

sudo systemctl enable libvirtd.socket
sudo systemctl start libvirtd.socket
sudo systemctl start virtlogd.service
