I recently set up a Solus Plasma VM using qemu/kvm/libvirt. VM starts and runs fine, and there is a lot to like. However, two guest dependencies that I would expect are either missing or, apparently, require the server side package in order to use it.
There is only one package "Qemu" listed in Software Center. Details indicate it is the full host package, and not the standalone guest agent. This forum post seems to support that the whole Qemu package is req'd in order to get the guest agent. Is this correct?
On other VMs I am using virtiofs to mount host partitions. This requires the virtiofs module, which, iirc, was made part of the kernel as of 5.4. I am unable to load this module:
xxxx@my-solus-kde-vm ~ $ sudo modprobe virtiofs
modprobe: FATAL: Module virtiofs not found in directory /lib/modules/5.14.10-199.current
(I have a longer Reddit post on this at r/SolusProject.)
Is virtiofs supported? If so, how to enable it?
Thanks for your time!
