I'm far from an expert here, but I think the right answer is to simply build it from source. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS, and it built with only minor problems from missing dependencies.


Use git to clone the repository for the latest bleeding edge, or download the zip from one of the previous releases here


Generally the process for this sort of thing is:

* Obtain the code (either from git, or from a downloaded zip)
* cd into the main folder, and run configure
* resolve any complaints about things missing when you do previous steps, which for ubuntu is just "apt-get install xyz" where xyz is the missing thing
* run "make"
* look in the build folder for executables

This is what I did for obtaining the latest version on Ubuntu, and it worked fine.

Hope this helps.

Im currently trying to use the QEMU/KVM with virtmanager onubuntu 20.04 and I want to be able to map a folder on the host to a windows 10 VM with virtio-fs ive done it in manjro as the latest version of qemu was avalable on it but i'd prefer to use a more stable and widely supported distro like ubuntu. From what I understand i need qemu 5.0 and higher but ubuntu has an older version.

My question is how do i upgrade the installed versionĀ  so that it has the virtio-fs driver in qemu
