I don't know. I'd first done yum groupinstall virtualization. As I remember, that only brought in qemu-img. When that didn't work I installed qemu*x86. I may have installed qemu-user also. Finally yum install qemu*. Then it worked.

Any clues on paravirtualization?

QEMU and KVM are both fullvirt technologies. Xen is paravirt.

I probably found the reason installing qemu*86 is not enough:

http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/Running_libvirt_with_KVM

That page is just plain wrong for Fedora users. The binaries as installed
by the qemu (or qemu-system-x86) RPMs are setup correctly. There is no
need setup symlinks in that way. If you installed the qemu/qemu-system*
RPMs after the initial install, you should reboot to make sure all the
kernel modules are loaded, and features detected. If you don't want to
reboot, then manually check the kernel modules are loaded, and also restart the libvirtd daemon (service libvirtd restart)

Daniel

Okay. I know I restarted libvirtd, but I didn't check if the kernel modules were loaded.

In any event, your point about the page being wrong for fedora users is well taken. As I've been messing around with this the past couple of days, I've had trouble finding resources for fedora kvm users. And the resources I have found don't match how F11 has set things up. See, for instance, my comment today to http://www.linux-kvm.com/content/using-bridged-networking-virt-manager.

Are there kvm resources for fedora users? I've seen the ubuntu howto's, but I've been leery, because F11 may be set up differently. Is there a list or forum for fedora kvm users?
