Unit libvertd.service not found (Fedora 35)


This is just a laptop playground, meaning I could raze it to the ground and start over.

I am attempting to install qemu/kvm and I’m unable to start the libvertd.service. I get the error message in the title. Looking for any service in systemctl sure enough doesn’t show anything.

I’ve followed instructions on the Fedora Project website under the Quick Docs / Virtualization / Getting Started with virutalization (libvert).

I ran this command to install everything:

sudo dnf group install --with-optional virtualization

So, I’m evidently doing something wrong.

I was hoping to try out the feature.

This command, by the way…

egrep '^flags.*(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

Returns 16, so I think I’m okay there.


Thanks, all.

On F36, this file is provided by libvirt-daemon. Do you have the package installed?

$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/systemd/system/libvirtd.service

It should’ve been pulled in by the group installation.#


are you looking for libvirtd.service or libvertd.service (virt vs vert)?

That’s a good question. I’ll check. I am installed KDE Plasma now since I wanted to play with it anyway. I’ll try it all out when I’m done and report back.

I didn’t like KDE at all and Wayland kept crashing so I went to 36 Gnome and everyting is fine. I had no problems. I’m all set. Thanks a bunch!
