After updating Clear Linux from 6970 to 7090, I was unable to start KVM
VMs (without OpenStack) as virsh gave the following error message:
"virsh could not find capabilities for arch=x86_64"
I then decided to reinstall Clear Linux with latest (7090) installer
but this doesn't solve the problem:
$ sudo virsh define VM1000.xml
error: Failed to define domain from VM1000.xml
error: invalid argument: could not find capabilities for arch=x86_64
Bellow are a few commands with their output:

Any suggestions appreciated.
I'm not sure this is the place to post but I don't have any other options.
I followed the instructions for the install pen drive creation and got it to run but was given no choice for a drive to install on. It chose the hard drive without telling me, wiped the drive and failed to install anything leaving me with a boat anchor. I had to install Windows 10, as there was no recovery partition left from the original 8.1 install.
The live image fails to boot.
So far I can't say I'm very impressed.
Any suggestions appreciated.

I did, over the weekend, add virt-viewer which is supposed to be able to view spice...
Thank you for your answer. Should it be possible, as a workaround, to
get `websockify` (currently available in the `bat` bundle) in a lighter
bundle in order to use noVNC <https://kanaka.github.io/noVNC> or Spice
HTML5 Client <http://www.spice-space.org/page/Html5> ?
Another option could be spice-xpi plug-in for Mozilla Firefox <https://
github.com/SPICE/spice-xpi>... What do you think?

It seems that there is still no spice client (nor vnc viewer) supported
in Clear Linux.
As I still would like to use KVM virtual machines without OpenStack
with Clear Linux installed natively on my computer, is there a simple
"Clear Linux way" to add a missing package like a spice client?

Using Clear Linux 6580 installer, I configured a new user and added it
to the sudoers file as the installer proposed it.
Restarting the system after last install message, I found out that sudo
command was not available until os-utils bundle is added.
Since only root can add a bundle and reboot or shutdown the machine,
this is really a problem as the user is then stuck at the command
What do you think?
When you refer to user data on that page, are you referring to user
configuration data, or "real" user data (like documents the user may have
written, emails, spreadsheets, videos, etc.)?
I hope you are not referring to both, and I'd appreciate it if you made that
distinction on your page.

Thanks. Unfortunately x32 is completely different from x86 and not something our application supports. In either case, using -mx32 with the simple main program gives the same linker errors as -m32. So, it seems that only 64-bit executables are supported on Clear Linux (as Ikey Doherty wrote).
