virt-install: No domains available for ... hvm ... i686 ... kvm


I'm trying to setup my first libvirt domain with virt-install and I'm getting this error:
Quote:
... ERROR (cli:439) No domains available for virt type 'hvm', arch 'i686', domain type 'kvm'
But I don't understand if that means there is no existing domain (no kidding--that's what I'm trying to create), or if it can't create it (then why?).

I'm installing WindowsXP (i686) as a guest on my Fedora 17 host (x86_64, i7 core). I've already run Linux directly with qemu-kvm, but I'm trying to use libvirt.

What's the problem here?

Oh, never mind. I've been bouncing back and forth between VirtualBox and KVM and I forgot to reinstall the kernel modules.

modprobe kvm_intel solved it.
