I have setup a qemu Linux guest using virt-manager. I have mounted a host path successfully. The libvirt configuration snippet on the host:
<filesystem type='mount' accessmode='mapped'> <source dir='/home/robert/Documents/sources/oss/linux'/> <target dir='/linux-src'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x08' function='0x0'/> </filesystem>
The fstab line on the guest:
/linux-src /mnt/linux-src 9p defaults 0 0
Accessing and reading works fine, but I'm unable to write to that directory
$ cd /mnt/linux-src $ touch asd $ touch: cannot touch 'asd': Permission denied
I am running as the
root user in the guest and the files belong to my user (
robert) on the host.
What can I do to allow write access to that folder from the guest?
