I'm trying to install QEMU/KVM on a PC using the following:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU/Options#Networking

But I encountered:

*****
Create the bridge:
FILE /etc/systemd/network/vmbridge.netdev

[NetDev]
Name=vmbridge
Kind=bridge

Configure the bridge's address:
FILE /etc/systemd/network/10-vmbridge.network

[Match]
Name=vmbridge

[Network]
Description=Your awesome VM bridge
Address=10.0.42.1/24
*****

Is there an OpenRC (non-systemd) version of this?

Yes. It was even documented on the linked page, until the documentation was incorrectly deleted by JJ in the edit Networking: migrate and improve network config options from main page. Read Networking (oldid 744866). Post back if you need more help. If that is sufficient, ping JJ asking why he/she deleted this useful content.

After many trials and errors of:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU

but with critical additonal option in USE at /etc/portage/make.conf: virt-network

there is NO need for:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU/Options#Networking
nor
https://wiki.gentoo.org/index.php?title=QEMU/Options&oldid=744866#Networking

virt-network option in USE simplifies many things, no bridging setup (it's automatic).

I have documented a Virtualization Server Host GUI guide at
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-8305406.html#8305406

thx...

I'm sorry, just curious, but what good is a VM if you can't access it?

In my case, I'm testing different OS under Qemu/KVM. No need to access the VMs.

ok. fine. but you should not post guides for others. when you are testing. and "after many trials and errors". you should know, your guide is severely flawed in many ways.

about how to make a bridge connection in gentoo with openrc? yeah. i did post in that other thread. there are also tons of other guides.

I'm sorry you missed it, but a guide about how to start a bridge connection in an openrc installation is not exactly news worthy.
