    Description

      After adding the user to the group kvm (http://www.funtoo.org/KVM), kvm is still not able to start. It turned out that the group kvm has no rights to access /dev/kvm:

      crw------- 1 root root 10, 232 18. Okt 22:28 /dev/kvm

      After changing this to

      crw-rw---- 1 root kvm 10, 232 18. Okt 22:28 /dev/kvm

      kvm starts.

      Maybe just adding that change to the qemu package?
