Binary packages built by this source

kvm: dummy transitional package from kvm to qemu-kvm

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

qemu: dummy transitional package from qemu to qemu-kvm

 This transitional package helps users transition from the qemu package to the
 qemu-kvm 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 running virtualized and emulated x86 and
 x86-64 machines only. Support for other architectures is provided by the
 qemu-linaro source package.

qemu-utils: qemu utilities

 This package provides some utilities for which full qemu-kvm is not needed,
 in particular qemu-nbd and qemu-img.
