install KVM on ubuntu
First of all you need to check your PC have the capability to use the kernel based virtualization.
Checking by using command below:
sudo egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo
If you found this command output nothing, just switch to another virtualization software as your PC does not support KVM.
Then to install KVM component:
sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm kvm-ipxe ikvm ubuntu-vm-builder libvirt-bin bridge-utils
After installation, the virtual network card is created by default, so just start virtual network card process:
sudo service libvirt-bin start
Before making use of the
virsh command to operate VM in real, you need to grant permission to operate them by adding into group:
sudo adduser rugal libvirtd
sudo adduser rugal kvm
rugal with your own user name.
Now just check if you have the right command and permission to execute below:
virsh --connect qemu:///system list --all
