  1. Concerning the shared folder: How do you solve the problem that the file created on the host system by you (dt) changed owner automatically to "nobody" as soon as you edited it on the guest machine and was no longer rwx for the dt on the host machine? If you want to use files both on bare metal and on VMs, the owner should not change and the files should stay readable/writable for both sides, right?
    Thank you for all your explanations in this and other videos – greatly appreciated!

  2. I converted an old Windows XP image from VirtualBox to Virt-Manager and it blue screens all the time. For Windows guests I usually have more luck with VirtualBox

  3. Virtualbox can use kvm as it's virtualization engine, if it couldn't then on linux it would be unbelievably slow. Also virtualbox uses the windows equivalent of kvm to speed up the emulation too, the only reason why the software emulation exists is for systems that don't have cpu support for hardware virtual machines.

  4. The problem I'm having with QEMU/Virt-Manager is I can't get Virtio opengl to work along with Spice opengl. If I turn off opengl the machine boots, but opengl on results in it sitting at a black screen for a long time and than it usually shutsdown on it's own.
