manjaro and qemmu+kvm
#1
Hi, im trying to install qemmu on pinebook using manjaro.

I see kernel has enabled KVM via dmesg, but when try to create qemmu image ovmf files arent installed.

Strit said Anarsoul is kernel maintainer of manjaro-arm for pinebook.

But some packages aren't on majaro, like this, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ovmf-aarch64/

Any tips to install correctly qemu+kvm on pinebook?

I found more problems with qemu on manjaro arm pinebook.

Hi erchade2000
The package `ovmf-aarch64` that you mention is an AUR (Archlinux User Repository) package. AUR is not supported by `pacman`. The Archlinux devs prefer to have a natural barrier if you use AUR packages. That has advantages (you understand better what you are doing) but is also sometimes a bit cumbersome.
You can download and install the package manually (see wiki) or and generally more comfortably you use a so called AUR helper. The AUR helper makes access to the AUR repository very similar to the way pacman works and also can be used as a pacman replacement.
You might want to give `yay` a look (no dependencies) or maybe `trizen`
You can then install the package like this: `yay -S ovmf-aarch64`
If you use the AUR it is expected that you have installed the base-devel package group. Or you occasionally have to install a build dependency.

All packages available in the AUR for Archlinux are as far as I know also available for Manjaro.
(There are sometimes packages that are not supported for you architecture, but that's the same for Archlinux then)

Hi @erchache2000 ,
Have you managed to run qemu-kvm on your Manjaro?
If so, then could you please share your experience with managing some guest VM on such system?
My idea is to build a hypervisor that could manage 3-4 home servers (running on x86_64 servers). Is it possible with Pine64 boards?
Thank you.
