Failed to define domain


#1

Hello, I have just decompressed archive and started to import Whonix VM Templates. But I’ve got an error on first step:
virsh -c qemu:///system define Whonix-Gateway*.xml error: Failed to define domain from Whonix-Gateway-13.0.0.1.1.xml error: internal error unexpected feature pvspinlock

What should I do? Thank you.


#2

Try editing the vm xml and changing < pvspinlock/> to
< pvspinlock state=‘on’/>

(No spaces. its typed that way because formatting problems)

BTW what libvirt version are you running?


#3

Nothing good, same error.

libvirtd 0.9.8 on Kubuntu 12.04.
libvirt-bin is already the newest version.


#4

Ah OK. The libvirt version is too old to support this feature. You need to remove the pvspinlock feature from your config files completely.

You’re running Ubuntu LTS - Debian’s equivalent of old-stable but the config files target the stable version. So for best results please move to Debian stable which I recommend over Ubuntu anyway.

Ubuntu has a poor record for respecting user privacy.
