as we have libvirt 6.5, shouldnt it be possible to use hook scripts ?


i created the folder /etc/libvirt/hooks/qemu.d/ where the scripts should be executed ordered by name (i only need 1)


so in my case i added a script, chmod +x, with the following content (also a test output which also doesnt get executed)



echo "Testrun" > /mnt/cache/testrun.txt

if [ $# -ge 3 ]; then
    if [ $1 = "Work_gvt" -a $2 = "prepare" -a $3 = "begin" ]; then
        echo "Creating vgpu"
        echo ee0036c0-8e21-40b2-9f33-8d5c5f6f5f93 > "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/mdev_supported_types/i915-GVTg_V5_8/create"
    elif [ $1 = "Work_gvt" -a $2 = "release" -a $3 = "end" ]; then
        echo "removing vgpu"
        echo 1 > "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/ee0036c0-8e21-40b2-9f33-8d5c5f6f5f93/remove"


so question is, only possible to modify the limetech qemu file to initiate things ... which shouldnt be the goal i d guess.
