Something I have been meaning to write about for a while is my KVM/VFIO-based gaming setup. Yes, I run Linux. And I run Windows, on Linux, in a virtual machine (VM). And it works! I game on it almost every day.
But the longer post has to wait for another day.
Today I am just sharing the short script that lets me keep my Libvirt hooks for Qemu a tad more organized:
You can save the script as
/etc/libvirt/hooks/qemu, and then you can put all your VM-specific scripts under
/etc/libvirt/hooks/ as separate files:
For example, if you have a
win10-prepare-begin script inside the
hooks/ directory, it will only be run when you start your
win10 VM at the prepare stage.
You can learn more about Libvirt hooks here.
But why not put these scripts inside a
qemu.d/ directory? Since v6.5.0, Libvirt lets you put multiple Qemu-specific hooks inside the
qemu.d/ directory. Libvirt still runs all the scripts for each of your VM like it runs
