Libvirtd.service could not be found

I installed the KVM hypervisor server and tools through yast successfully.

My AMD cpu is verified to support virtualization.


Virtualization features: 
  Virtualization:        AMD-V

sudo modprobe kvm-amd
lsmod | grep kvm
kvm_amd               200704  0
kvm                  1298432  1 kvm_amd
irqbypass              16384  1 kvm
ccp                   139264  1 kvm_amd
sudo systemctl enable libvirtd
[sudo] password for root: 
Failed to enable unit: Unit file libvirtd.service does not exist.
sudo systemctl status libvirtd
Unit libvirtd.service could not be found.

I tried rebooting my machine but no luck.

Shouldn’t this have been installed when I installed the KVM server and tools? Can’t seem to find any answers on this searching documentation. thanks

Thank you, that worked after installing libvirt which installed a few additional libvirt packages.
