KVM

Ubuntu 18.04 on Wayland has no screen tearing issues. Noticed problems with xorg when maximising windows and performance was slow

Steps to share folder with guest

Reference

Not working with CentOS 7 guest as there is no support for the 9p filesystem

  1. Create folder on host.
  2. Change ownership of the folder to libvirt-qemu
  3. In virt-manager, add hardware and then add filesystem. Use Mode as “Squash”
  4. Reboot VM
  5. Mount share using:
mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L /hostshare /home/guest_user/host_files
