    Could not read keymap file: 'en-us' KVM error

    Hi Guys,

    did some updates on Ubuntu18LTS server with only KVM server installed. It took a keyboard update of some sort. Now I can't start a virsh vm:

    Code:
    root@serv:/home/adminpc# virsh start mailserv
    error: Failed to start domain mailserv
    error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: Could not read keymap file: 'en-us'
    
    root@serv:/home/adminpc# systemctl enable virtlogd.socket & systemctl start virtlogd.socket
    [1] 1852
    [1]+  Done                    systemctl enable virtlogd.socket
    root@serv:/home/adminpc# virsh start mailserv
    error: Failed to start domain mailserv
    error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: Could not read keymap file: 'en-us'
    
    root@serv:/home/adminpc# systemctl status virtlogd.socket

    Anyone can help me with this error?

    Regards

    I've never seen that sort of error.
    Can you connect to the libvirt from the GUI manager ... virt-manager on a different workstation?

    For any lurkers, /var ran out of space which has been resolved (I believe).

    Looks like something related to the keymap for that VM got modified. Any clues in the VM.xml file?
    Do other VMs start on the same server?

    I think you'll have to figure this out. I have no special knowledge about that error and have 4 VMhosts on 18.04 today. None of mine use root/sudo to start them up. My normal userid is in the libvirtd group and has full control over all VMs.
