qemu-kvm 0.12.5+noroms-0ubuntu7 (i386 binary) in ubuntu maverick
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
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.
