virt-manager 1:1.5.1 On Ubuntu.
Unable to connect to libvirt qemu:///system
libvirtd.service status shows it is running and that there are no errors
Journal contains following
28153: error : virGetGroupID:1123 : invalid argument: Failed to parse group 'tss' 28153: error : virGetUserID:1043 : invalid argument: Failed to parse user 'tss'
'tss' does not exist as user in /etc/shadow or group in /etc/group
I could simply add tss as user and group. Will that be enough or is this indicative of something I've done wrong? Though I don't know what that could have been because all I've done is install.
I have been happily using VirtualBox for years but VB now requires VT-X which the old target machine does not support. I've tried installing an old VBox but get so many errors (even after --fix-broken) that I don't want to mess with it. So I'm giving virt-manager a try.
UPDATE: I added user tss without any special privilege and the machine now starts. However It does not get far, runs very slowly, because of the lack of CPU virtualization. So... I will not be using this machine for VM.
