I think you can use 'ps aux | grep sheep' to get start up command of
sheep daemon.

I have no idea why QEMU has two parts in your proxmox box. If we don't
see any error in sheep.log, then probably the culprit is the qemu itself.

I guess you can have a try, just compile it and no need to install it.
Use explicit path to invoke qemu-system-x86_64 to set up your VM.
