[Swan-dev] problem on new testing machine

I'm setting up testing Fedora 28 machine.  I've followed all the 

An interesting glitch: my PC's firmware settings dissabled multiple cores 
and virtualization features.  I discovered that partway into a make 

After fixing that, I have not been able to get make kvm-install to work.  
Even after a make kvm-purge.

Any suggestions?

Why would qemy close a monitor?

Why is Domain id=1 tainted?

Here's how it fails:
