Very much a work in progress.

This site is very rough around the edges at the moment but will slowly take shape over time.

I primarily use this a s a journal or notebook for some of the projects I'm doing.  The primary goal at the moment is setting up a number of online servers for use with some webhosting and also to try and learn a bit about Linux and server operations as well as having a bit of fun.

This site will be undergoing many changes in the coming period and hopefully will be of some benefit to me and anyone who stumbles upon it.


Install the basic files required.  

yum install qemu-kvm libvirt libvirt-python libguestfs-tools virt-install

now we start the sevice livird which is  the aemon component of the libvirt virtualization management system.  All the fun stuff of virtual host management.

systemctl enable libvirtd

systemctl start libvirtd

Verify the installation

lsmod | grep -i kvm

Did a quick reboot - network restart ?

bridge name   bridge id                      STP enabled     interfaces
virbr0               8000.525400fac60c    yes                     virbr0-nic

A default private network was created :

This can be verified with the command:

virsh net-dumpxml default
