In this post I will describe how to start a virtual machine using the qemu-system-x86_64. Additionally, I use openvswitch for networking (bridge was created as "xenbr0").
Download the necessary file from our server:
Disk image: http://threos.io/files/vm/x86_64.img (or you can use a VMDK: http://threos.io/files/vm/x86_64.vmdk)
qemu starter script (atm this requires root, because of the openvswitch -- however you can get rid of this by changing to host-only networking): http://threos.io/files/vm/start
openvswitch scripts: http://threos.io/files/vm/ovs-ifup http://threos.io/files/vm/ovs-ifdown
Before continue, edit you "start" script. Change the necessary values.
Add execution rights for: "start", "ovs-ifup" and "ovs-ifdown".
Execute the "start" script, for instance:
