Hi all,

The background to my problem is that I had a modified KVM running on my machine to run VMs, which launched a script at a given point in the program.

I installed libvirt and Virtual Machine Manager, partly in order to ensure that I could use it with my custom KVM-QEMU if I wanted to.

After loading VMs using VMM, I noticed that the custom KVM wasn't being launched and that it was a generic KVM instead. I found that VMM launches from /usr/bin/kvm instead of the place I installed my KVM at /usr/local/kvm/bin/qemu-system-x86_64.

To try to get it to launch my version instead, I did the following:

mv /usr/bin/kvm /usr/bin/kvm-old
cp /usr/local/bin/kvm /usr/bin/kvm

Unfortunately this still does not launch the custom KVM from VMM, even though if I launch from the command line from /usr/bin/kvm it launches the custom KVM. I can't figure out where the problem is, and I am hoping those of you who know more about configuring applications can provide some help please.
