Could it be because the update to 5.0 was not complete?  I've noticed new qemu packages coming slowly in the past few days, so maybe some of the older packages were not working so well with the new ones?  Just a wild guess...  I tried it in my box (also using Virtual Manager) and I had no problems, though.

That is possible finotti.  I also saw more qemu packages updated this morning. Maybe I was running a "Frankenqemu".  LOL

Awesome !  :)
Free speech isn't just fucking saying what you want to say, it's also hearing what you don't want to fucking hear

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

I found a more convincing solution to my "almost frozen" Win 10 qemu/KVM issue.

My CPU is an Intel "Kaby Lake" generation, specifically:

Code: [Select]
$ inxi -C
CPU:       Topology: Quad Core model: Intel Core i7-7740X bits: 64 type: MT MCP L2 cache: 8192 KiB
           Speed: 4501 MHz min/max: 800/4500 MHz Core speeds (MHz): 1: 4501 2: 4500 3: 4502 4: 4500 5: 4500 6: 4500 7: 4500
           8: 4500

I have the CPU set in VMM to "Copy host CPU configuration".

But some googling turned up this post with the solution to edit the XML to add

Code: [Select]
<synic state='on'/>
<stimer state='on'/>

in the "hyperv" paragraph of the XML for the VM.  I did that three days ago, gave it only 2 CPUs, and 4 GB of memory, and it has been running problem-free for three days. Apparently something in the qemu 5 update exposed the problem and this change to the XML fixed it.

Now it actually is solved.   8)
