Install KVM with UEFI Guests support on Manjaro KDE 20.1.1

UPDATE 21/10/2020

 Manjaro Gnome && KDE 20.1.2 are affected by the same bug


Attempt to test another Linux distro Manjaro KDE 20.1.1 as Virthost managed via Cockpit Web Console, i.e. deployment and management KVM guests on the recent Manjaro KDE utilizing Web Console . Bare metal platform is Ryzen 7 3700X based with 16 GB RAM and mother board MSI X570 A-PRO ( SVM status enabled )

First thing to do is manual fix grub.cfg to avoid using only "fallback initramfs" grub entry as follows bellow

Then manually update grub.cfg :-

Another command is to install package supporting KVM guests UEFI deployment $ sudo pacman -S edk2-ovmf . In particular case bare metal  installation on gparted segment of drive /dev/sdb  had been performed with no issues both /boot/efi and /boot had been marked by flag "boot" and nothing else , obviously followed by 
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /etc/grub2-efi.cfg
on Fedora Server 32 SSD drive , updating major grub.cfg on multiple systems booting up host . Updates mentioned above should be done manually to major grub.cfg on Fedora's SSD drive .

Now proceed the same way as for version 20.0.3
Setup KVM on Manjaro
 $ sudo pacman -S virt-manager virt-viewer \
     qemu vde2 ebtables dnsmasq \
     bridge-utils openbsd-netcat

  $ sudo systemctl start libvirtd.service

  $ sudo systemctl status libvirtd.service
  $ sudo systemctl enable  libvirtd.service
  $ sudo reboot

 Setup Web Cockpit Console on Manjaro KDE 20.1.1

  $ sudo pacman -S cockpit cockpit-machines
  $ sudo systemctl start cockpit.socket
  $ sudo systemctl status  cockpit.socket
  $ sudo systemctl enable  cockpit.socket

 Setup Firewalld On Manjaro

  $ sudo pacman -S firewalld 
  $ sudo systemctl start firewalld
  $ sudo systemctl status  firewalld
  $ sudo systemctl enable  firewalld

 Open port 9090
  $ sudo firewall-cmd --add-service=cockpit --permanent
  $ sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Running guest's installation
