Binary package “qemu-kvm” in ubuntu precise

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
   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.
