Hi there,
Mount the Centos 6 DVD and try installing from there with rpm. I believe "qemu-kvm" will be there in DVD

i have installed KVM on my machine when i try to run KVM the following error occours:

Error: No hypervisor options were found for this connection.

This usaually means that qemu or kvm is not installed on your machine. please ensure they are installed as intended.

i have post many question about KVM most of answer i have find i was not able to install virtualizaition on my local machine, but iam not clear about this flags, what does this flag means.

lm = long mode (64-bit x86)
svm = secure virtual machine (AMD)
vmx = virtual machine x86 (intel)

i have flag lm in my cpu. lm flag didn't support in AMD sempron to run to solve this error or did i was able to run KVM on my machine or is there any other virtual machine which support my cpu flags.? iam new to linux if someone giude me right way i'll be greatful.
