Applications & Software / Re: QEMU/KVM and Libvirt (virtqemud not found) [s6]

The output of sudo s6-svstat /run/s6-rc/servicedirs/libvirtd-srv is:
Code: [Select]
down (exitcode 0) 17268 seconds, ready 17268 seconds

And the output of sudo s6-svstat /run/s6-rc/servicedirs/virtlogd-srv is:
Code: [Select]
up (pid 729) 17275 seconds

I installed Qemu + virt-manager and all of their dependencies with
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S virt-manager qemu vde2 iptables-nft dnsmasq bridge-utils openbsd-netcat edk2-ovmf swtpm
I'm using virt-manager to run kvm.

the output of ls -l /var/run/libvirt/*virt*sock* is
Code: [Select]
srwx------ 1 root root 0 Nov 26 17:24 /var/run/libvirt/virtlogd-admin-sock
srwx------ 1 root root 0 Nov 26 17:24 /var/run/libvirt/virtlogd-sock

So, it seems that the libvirt service is down for some reason, and some things are missing from /var/run/libvirt.

Applications & Software / Blender: libtbb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Last post by reifelinus -
This is my first time posting some issue i have on a forum, please be patient.

So, after a system update through pacman -syyu, blender will not open with the error:

Code: [Select]
 error while loading shared libraries: libtbb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" 

after some search i deducted that libtbb comes from the package tbb on the repository, which has two versions: world/tbb(newer) and  extra/tbb(older).

using the newer i get the error above, and using the older i get:

Code: [Select]
error while loading shared libraries: libtbb.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

blender is currently at version:  blender-17:2.93.6-1

You can run:
sudo s6-svstat /run/s6-rc/servicedirs/libvirtd-srv
sudo s6-svstat /run/s6-rc/servicedirs/virtlogd-srv

What exact actions did you perform to install and run kvm?

What command do you run when you get the error?

What output do you get from:
ls -l /var/run/libvirt/*virt*sock*

This is what I get:
Code: [Select]
srwx------ 1 root libvirt 0 Nov 26 18:52 /var/run/libvirt/libvirt-admin-sock
srwxrwx--- 1 root libvirt 0 Nov 26 18:52 /var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock
srwxrwxrwx 1 root libvirt 0 Nov 26 18:52 /var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock-ro
srwx------ 1 root root    0 Nov 26 18:52 /var/run/libvirt/virtlogd-admin-sock
srwx------ 1 root root    0 Nov 26 18:52 /var/run/libvirt/virtlogd-sock

1. Add your user to groups libvirt and kvm
I already added myself to kvm andlibvirt beforehand, so I didn't need to do this.

Quote
2. Update the following 4 lines in /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf
I didn't do this before, so I edited the config and rebooted, but saw no change.

Maybe something could be stopping it from running? I'm not really too sure, is there any way to verify that it's running?

Installation / Migration / Configuration / Re: disappointing first impression
Last post by thepapahippo -
Thanks for the feedback. I now realise that my first post was rather sketchy, leaving me wide open to be patronised. Don't worry; not the first time, probably not the last.

Here's some follow-up/ background info:

I've been using Unix (later linux) since the 1980s and so am quite familiar with the command line tools like less, more, man etc. but I prefer to use a GUI these days (actually since the days of FVWM).

I'm not a full-blooded distro-hopper; more of a distro drifter, slowly drifting over the years (Yggdrasil->Slackware->... Ubuntu ->Mint->MX Linux), always with a good reason. (My Mint installation is primarily to give support to other users here in NL, where Mint is still very popular - whatever distrowatch etc. may say!).

While I was employed as a Linux consultant, I had to follow the local accepted wisdom and 'embrace' systemd. Now that I'm retired, I sometimes like to plough my own furrow; specifically, I want to move away from systemd, and of the several  alternatives, runit seems to fit my style and needs best. This gives me a number of options. I'm currently also evaluating antix, which is less polished than Mx Linux (and probably Artix), but means I can use an old - rescued from the dump - laptop for testing, and worry less about trashing existing installations.

Installation / Migration / Configuration / Re: Installation Goes OK, But Fail Installing Gub
Last post by ####### -
If you are doing a UEFI install and don't have a UEFI partition as your lsblk output indicates, there's no partition for grub to be installed into, so that's going to be a problem. The UEFI partition can be located anywhere on the drive. It's got to be the right FS type and flagged correctly as described in the linked wiki page. Alternatively switch to BIOS boot and enable that in your BIOS menu too. I don't think there's any advantage to UEFI except stuff that's probably not relevant to most home use.
smartmontools can tell you more about your drive health status if you are concerned about it. That seems unlikely if other distros work though.

Here is some advice from a long time GNU/Linux user:
  • Don't distrohop. Choose one distro/init/DE (or no DE), install it, learn it really well, use it, master it. If you want to test different distros or OSes, use QEMU.
  • Plan some time to read documentation. For Artix, this includes Artix and Arch wikis, and for GNU/Linux in general man pages, READMEs, /usr/share/doc, websites of programs, etc.
  • Learn command line. Learn programs "less" and "man" first, then use them to learn basic Unix and GNU tools like cp, cat, find, grep, and later advanced tools like sed and awk. Learn shell.
