Hi,

I am trying to use x86 machine to create VMs.
But one error occurs.

[root mcd kvm-test]# virsh create test.xml
error: Failed to create domain from test.xml
error: unknown OS type hvm

My xml file is as the following:

<domain type='kvm'>

I check kvm module, it is available.

[root mcd kvm-test]# lsmod |grep kvm
kvm_intel 119308 4
kvm 344876 1 kvm_intel

But I tried the capabilities, it is not right.
There is no guest capabilities.

This problem occurs some times.
When I tried to find this problem, it didn't occur.
Now it occurs again. It's a little strange.

Is there anything I miss?


It may be you're missing some rpm packages installation such as
yajl(yajl-devel) or usbredir.

Maybe you are right.

I get the log from libvirtd.log

2012-06-04 01:43:11.957+0000: 24982: error : virDomainDefParseXML:8458 : unknown OS type hvm 2012-06-04 01:43:16.971+0000: 24979: error : qemuCapsComputeCmdFlags:1215 : unsupported configuration: this qemu binary requires libvirt to be compiled with yajl 2012-06-04 01:43:17.016+0000: 24979: error : qemuCapsComputeCmdFlags:1215 : unsupported configuration: this qemu binary requires libvirt to be compiled with yajl

I will have a try to install the rpm packages.
