i’m on EndeavourOS host and qemu/KVM user sesssion .try to setting network.
sorry for poor english skill.
sudo virsh -c qemu:///system net-define Whonix_external_network-22.214.171.124.xml
[sudo] password for tune:
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/virtqemud-sock': No such file or directory
If these are fine but… Whonix doesn’t work then logically a user would conclude that it’s a Whonix specific issue.
However, it’s still probably not really Whonix specific.
This file is pretty simple. Imagine it doesn’t say “Whonix” and then wonder why it doesn’t work.
Only specific to how to setup NAT / bridge / virbr1 on your Linux distribution with KVM.
If using Arch as operating system then this error message seems a primate target for “use a search engine”. The question becomes why you don’t have /var/run/libvirt/virtqemud-sock and how to get this? Might be as simple as a missing package that needs installation, starting a systemd unit and/or changing a configuration file to enable this.
Given the low activity of Whonix KVM development and support, I think Generic Bug Reproduction is the only promising approach to resolve this.
