How do I start libvirt in Fedora 19?

Hi,

I have just installed virt-manager in Fedora 19. I have looked into the /etc/init.d directory but I can't find any init scripts for libvirt.

Is libvirt using systemd, and if so, how do I start it?

Thank you very much.

I've not run libvirt in recent Fedoras, bu the standard way to start a systemd service is

systemctl start <service>.service, so it's probably

systemctl start libvirtd.service

systemctl enable libvirtd.service should start it automatically at boot

Code:
systemctl enable libvirtd.service
This will enable libvirt service and get your VMs running (assuming everything else is alright).

Also, I do realize that this is draft documentation, but take a look at this as well - http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...ide/index.html

Hope that helps.

Thanks guys.

I have successfully started the libvirtd service, but it didn't create a network bridge.

How do I go about creating a network bridge? The command "sudo brctl show" shows nothing.

One quick guide, even though it's written for RHEL, should work for Fedora. (Untested by me though)

When I installed virt-manager in Ubuntu, it created a network bridge virbr0.

Now that I have installed virt-manager in Fedora 19, it does not create a network bridge.

What should I do to have the network bridge created?
