How to troubleshoot "cannot find QEMU binary" error while creating virtual machine using RHEL 5.3?
Posted on 2009-02-21
I am trying out virtualization with RHEL 5.3. Till disk creation everthing looks fine but right after disk creation it gives an error as follows:
Unable to complete install 'libvirt.libvirtError virDomainCreateLinux() failed Cannot find QEMU binary /usr/bin/qemu: No such file or directory
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 627, in do_install
dom = guest.start_install(False, meter = meter)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 822, in start_install
return self._do_install(consolecb, meter, wait)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 843, in _do_install
self.domain = self.conn.createLinux(install_xml, 0)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 573, in createLinux
if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: virDomainCreateLinux() failed Cannot find QEMU binary /usr/bin/qemu: No such file or directory'
I was trying to create this VM using VMM available in RHEL 5.3. I am very new to world of LINUX. Also, it would be good if anyone of you can recommend some reading material or tutorial about LINUX and VM using RHEL 5.3.
Please help!! Thanks in advance.
