I’m trying to set up a shared folder between Manjaro host and Windows 10 guest in a KVM managed by virt-manager following this guide:
The screenshot looks like this with Source path being /tmp/share
But the command mention /tmp/host_files
# mkdir /tmp/host_files
# mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L /hostshare /tmp/host_files
Should the screenshot have been Source path: /tmp/host_files then?
The Source path in the picture is form the Host not the VM (Guest). The
/tmp/host_files is a suggested folder in VM.
So basically, it shows how to make the Host folder
/tmp/share available in the Guest as
/tmp/host_files by using
/hosyshare as a target path in the VM.
But the commands are Linux only. I don’t know how 9p works in Windows, and if it works at all.
Ah, I see now, thanks for reading! (instead of me )
That’s a good next question. If it doesn’t work in Windows (but other redirect from questions about Windows to this guide), then there is a way with Samba, but I’d like to avoid added complexity.
