Hi! I’m just getting started with Fedora and came across a problem.
Starting Gnome Boxes via the application launcher gives me an error stating that “Virtualization extensions are unavailable on your system”.
I poked around the BIOS settings and even installed a UEFI update, to no avail (which didn’t surprise me because I’ve used a few applications requiring VT-x on this machine in the past). Turns out, it works just fine by executing
sudo gnome-boxes in a terminal, but that’s a bit janky for daily use. Interestingly, managing Qemu/KVM machines using virt-manager works just fine if I open it from the applications menu without root privileges.
Is there a non-hacky fix for this? I’d like to avoid modifying the .desktop file or something like that.
Here’s the output of
Thank you, all the best
