I'm running Debian stretch and wanted to install kvm and virsh using the Debian wiki here mostly.
libvirt-bin is not available in the stretch repos and seems to have been replaced by
The following results in an error:
apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-clients # installs packages with no error adduser myuser kvm virsh list --all
This causes the following error (run as sudo):
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor error: no valid connection error: Failed to connect socket to '/run/user/1000/libvirt/libvirt-sock': No such file or directory
Most guides also say that I should add myuser to the
libvertd group, however it doesn't exist. On a site I can't find anymore (restarted the computer to see if this had an effect... it didn't) it said from memory that this wasn't required for recent version.
Do I need to install other packages or is does the configuration needs fixing?
