      A laptop always comes in handy on a trip - especially a holiday. I've been taking along my Thinkpad T430 lately. It's a bit on the heavy side, but it is waaay faster than my old Toshiba netbook. It's handy for backing up digital photos (yes I am one of the last dinosaurs who takes along a camera.) On a cruise I usually get the minimum Internet package for email and light web surfing but the Toshiba still drives my wife crazy with its 2 GB of RAM. Better to tote along the Thinkpad. I love to take the T430 out to the lounge near the IT office on the ship. Inevitably one of the computer guys comes along and asks if they can help out - what am I running on my Thinkpad. An answer of "Debian Buster" usually gets them moving away rapidly.

      Sweet! Glad that it was just apparmor. This is why I said overkill     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AppArmor
    • Hedon James
      You said apparmor is unnecessary and, in fact, overkill for a home user desktop scenario, correct?  If so, consider this resolved.   I nuked apparmor from the system. sudo apt remove apparmor it also took apparmor-utils with it, and I need to autoremove some orphans, but POOF....gone!   Tried to create a VM, but same errors.  Realized the libvirt.services probably needed to be restarted, so checked status: sudo systemctl status libvirtd.service sure enough, a red error line, so restarted service sudo systemctl restart libvirtd.service Tried to create a VM but same error.  Then realized that qemu/KVM is a kernel-based service, so maybe I needed to reboot the whole system.   Rebooted the system, tried to create a VM with user session and external disk image on /media/jim/sdc1 and TADA...there it is...VM booting in VMM.  THAT is what I've been looking for...exactly as desired!   Not sure what apparmor is, what it does, or why its installed by default on Debian 10, but it's gone now.  And VMM seems to be working (knock on wood) the way I thought it should.  I've probably swatted a fly with a sledgehammer, but I don't care right now.  I just need my VM available so I can use those windows-only programs that I need for my business!   Thanks for your help SB!
