Binary packages built by this source

kvm: dummy transitional pacakge from kvm to qemu-kvm

 This transitional package helps users transition from the kvm package to the
 kvm-qemu package. Once this package and its dependencies are installed you
 can safely remove it.

qemu: dummy transitional pacakge from qemu to qemu-kvm

 This transitional package helps users transition from the qemu package to the
 kvm-qemu package. Once this package and its dependencies are installed you
 can safely remove it.

qemu-arm-static: dummy transitional package for qemu-kvm-extras-static

 This transitional package helps users transition to the
 qemu-kvm-extras-static package. Once this package and its dependencies
 are installed you can safely remove it.

qemu-common: qemu common functionality (bios, documentation, etc)

 This package pulls in the various binary bios rom blobs needed to boot
 the various emulated architectures, as well as the documentation.

qemu-kvm: Full virtualization on i386 and amd64 hardware

 Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual PCs, each running unmodified Linux or
 Windows images. Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware: a
 network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.
 .
 KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
 Linux hosts on x86 (32 and 64-bit) hardware.
 .
 KVM is intended for systems where the processor has hardware support for
 virtualization, see below for details. All combinations of 32-bit and 64-bit
 host and guest systems are supported, except 64-bit guests on 32-bit hosts.
 .
 KVM requires your system to support hardware virtualization, provided by AMD's
 SVM capability or Intel's VT. To find out if your processor has the necessary
 support:
 .
   egrep "flags.*:.*(svm|vmx)" /proc/cpuinfo
 .
 If it prints anything, the processor provides hardware virtualization
 support and is suitable for use with KVM. Without hardware support, you can
 use qemu emulation instead.
 .
 KVM consists of two loadable kernel modules (kvm.ko and either kvm-amd.ko or
 kvm-intel.ko) and a userspace component. This package contains the userspace
 component, and you can get the kernel modules from the standard kernel images.
 .
 This package contains support for the x86 and x86-64 architectures only.
 Support for other architectures is provided by the qemu-kvm-extras package.

qemu-kvm-extras: fast processor emulator binaries for non-x86 architectures

 QEMU is a fast processor emulator: currently the package supports
 ARM, CRIS, i386, M68k (ColdFire), MIPS, PowerPC, SH4, SPARc and x86-64
 emulation. By using dynamic translation it achieves reasonable speed
 while being easy to port on new host CPUs. QEMU has two operating modes:
 .
  * User mode emulation: QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled for
    one CPU on another CPU.
  * Full system emulation: QEMU emulates a full system, including a
    processor and various peripherals. It enables easier testing and
    debugging of system code. It can also be used to provide virtual
    hosting of several virtual PC on a single server.
 .
 QEMU requires no host kernel patches or CPU extensions to run.

qemu-kvm-extras-static: static QEMU user mode emulation binaries

 This package provides a static version of the QEMU ARM user mode
 emulation. This is particularly useful in combination with
 binfmt-support: it permits running ARM binaries in an ARM chroot.
 .
 If you want full system emulation or if you don't need binfmt
 support, you probably want the qemu-kvm-extras package instead.
