Re: [libvirt] Out of Memory Error

The mentioned changes worked for adding a shared folder but while adding usb it gave an error saying:

error: Failed to attach device from /root/test/addingusb.xml 
error: An error occurred, but the cause is unknown

The xml file is given below:

<hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb'> 
        <vendor id='0x4321'/> 
        <product id='0xfeeb'/> 

Can you tell me what shall I do remove this error?

Btw, this XML is not correct. It should contain just the <hostdev>
