Re: [libvirt] libvirt with qemu-kvm, not recognizing NIC model



Sorry, it turned out to be the operating system of the guest OS having
the issue. It was not an issue with libvirt.

My bad,

Hm, this works just fine for me; I'm able to choose any of the above
when I create a guest.  However, you don't want to edit the /etc/libvirt
file directly.  Libvirt only reads that at startup and reload; during
runtime it isn't re-read.  To make the edit, you'll want to either use
virt-manager or "virsh edit <guest>".

If that doesn't work, post your entire XML file.
