Reporting a bug

Bugs can be filed at our bug tracker, which is hosted on GitLab. Note: If you’ve got a problem with how your Linux distribution packages QEMU, please use the bug tracker from your distro instead.

When submitting a bug report, please try to do the following:

QEMU does not use GitLab merge requests; patches are sent to the mailing list according to QEMU’s patch submissions guidelines.

Do NOT report security issues (or other bugs, too) as “confidential” bugs in the bug tracker. QEMU has a security process for issues that should be reported in a non-public way instead.

For problems with KVM in the kernel, use the kernel bug tracker instead; the KVM wiki has the details.
