Description Travis Osterman 2023-05-31 06:07:32 UTC
emerge --info

I am installing virt-manager and qemu on a fresh install and needed to emerge acct-group/libvirt separately as it was not identified as a dependency.

Steps to recreate: 
1. new headless amd64 openrc multilib install on 17.1 profile
2. emerge -uav app-emulation/qemu virt-manager dev-libs/libisoburn bridge-utils
3. usermod -aG kvm <user>
4. usermod -aG libvirt <user> 
usermod: group 'libvirt' does not exist
5. /etc/init.d/libvirtd start
6. virsh list
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/virtqemud-sock': No such file or directory

Steps to fix
1. emerge -av acct-group/libvirt
2. usermod -aG libvirt <user>
3. /etc/init.d/libvirtd restart
4. virsh list

You need USE=policykit for it to pull it in.
