Greetings;

Installed virtualization group and tried to create a virtual machine as a test. I have VM's running under Oracle VirtualBox but I wanted to see if there was going to be any performance benefit under KVM.

When I tried to create a VM using virt-manager, it fails at the final 'install' step with the following message:

Unable to complete install: 'internal error Child process (LC_ALL=C PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin /usr/bin/qemu-kvm -device ? -device pci-assign,? -device virtio-blk-pci,? -device virtio-net-pci,? -device scsi-disk,?) status unexpected: exit status 1'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 96, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1943, in do_install
    guest.start_install(False, meter=meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1249, in start_install
    noboot)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1317, in _create_guest
    dom = self.conn.createLinux(start_xml or final_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 2397, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: internal error Child process (LC_ALL=C PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin /usr/bin/qemu-kvm -device ? -device pci-assign,? -device virtio-blk-pci,? -device virtio-net-pci,? -device scsi-disk,?) status unexpected: exit status 1

I tried google, but it seems no one else gets this error.

Does anyone have any idea what could be happening?

Cheers

Make sure virtualization support is enabled in the BIOS.
