Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-12-08 00:31:27 UTC
I'm trying to set up a new virtual machine with a new install of virt-manager. In the course of creating one I encounter several errors caused by optional QEMU flags being off, those flags being usbredir and spice (which is already mentioned on the wiki: Because of this, I think adding a (potentially optional) use-dependency of app-emulation/qemu[usbredir,spice] would be beneficial so virt-manager is able to create virtual machines without error by default.
