Cannot create vm with machine type raspi2b

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi, I'm trying to use virt-manager to create a Raspberry Pi 2 virtual machine on my Talos 2 ppc64le workstation. In virt-manager I click on "New", then "Manual install", architecture "arm" and machine type "raspi2b". Next I set either "Generic or unknown OS" or "Debian 11" as operating system, I keep the default 1024 memory and 1 cpu and then I disable storage for this virtual machine (because I want to use an existing image with direct kernel boot, see
I check "Customize configuration before install" and I click "Finish".

Unfortunately I get the following error:

Error starting installation: Did not find any UEFI binary path for arch 'armv7l'

So I've decided to start from scratch and select "virt" as machine type instead of "raspi2b" and change it back later. With "virt" I manage to reach the configuration overview before the installation begins.

At this point I have three options for Firmware:
UEFI armv7l:/usr/share/qemu/edk2-arm-code.fd

UEFI is the default and if I change the machine type to raspi2b I still have the same three options (/usr/share/qemu/edk2-arm-code.fd does indeed exist in my file system).

Unfortunately clicking on "Begin Installation" leads me to yet another error:

Unable to complete install: 'internal error: Required option 'modelName' is not set for PCI controller with index '1', model 'pcie-root-port' and modelName 'none''

If I change the machine type back to "virt" I don't get any error.

I'm using app-emulation/qemu 7.1.0, app-emulation/libvirt-8.8.0 and virt-manager-4.1.0 on Gentoo Linux ppc64le with a 4K page size kernel.
