mythtv ~ sudo virsh start gogs
error: Failed to start domain gogs
error: Cannot check QEMU binary /usr/bin/kvm-spice: No such file or directory

In gogs.xml I have:


Searching Google seems to indicate that I don't need qemu-spice. What should I be using instead?

Re: QEMU Error Starting a VM.


You may need to create a custom qemu commandline or a new virtual domain in libvirt for spice support inside the guest.
Read archwiki qemu & libvirt pages thoroughly.
