I've got KVM (apt install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin virtinst) on linux mint 18. I created a CentOS 7 VM using raw disk format because I couldn't use qcow2 disk image format. What do I need to install to get qcow2 support?


I found it! It was really just a matter of reading the error message. I had to install qemu-utils and restart virt-manager. Maybe it could be useful for anyone else.
