Re: [libvirt] Error starting VM as a root user, but works fine as a normal (non-root) user

It looks like the attempt to execute 'path/to/qemu-system-x86_64

Could this be a SELinux issue preventing the execution of a file as root
that doesn't have proper labelling? Does an strace yield any hints?


[harsh harshbora libvirt]$ virsh create ~/testVMs/my_vm.xml
Domain my_vm created from /home/harsh/testVMs/my_vm.xml

Particularly since the same file can be executed as non-root?

Interesting thought.  Harsh, if you're not sure how to check, maybe do
a grep for "qemu" in /var/log/audit/audit.log and see if anything
interesting turns up?
