Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

so i reinstalled centos 6.0 this time i didn't run yum update. i should take this time to be more specific i installed centos this time and last as a virtual host so kvm is already installed
i go to set up the kvm now and it works yay
until the end this error gets generated
Error creating virtual network: internal error Network 192.168.100.1/255.255.255.0 is already in use by interface virbr1
now i have not set this up before also the book im working through tells me to do these commands before hand
lsmod | grep kvm
i do not get any output from this, i looked at the /proc/cpuinfo file as well andi could not find the following flags "svm" or "vmx"
i do not know what that means??
i also have used the command uname -p
and the output for that is x86_64
the lsmod shows that there is not a kvm module loaded (not sure if that's ok or not never set it up) The network in use sounds like exactly that run ifconfig =a and see if theres a device already using that network/ip. As for the last bit that's good that it is 64 bit.
when i type the ifconfig command it shows the eth0 lo and virt1 and virt2 network
when i click close to make the virtual network the gui box doesn't close then the second time i hit the finish button it pops that error up
after reading this book a little bit more, i think that kvm is not going to work on this computer, the cpu doesn't support it. i can run virtual box i think. however i want to mess with KVM because i never used it before.
does anyone reccomend any computers that will run KVM?
I will again emphasize on reading the link. The link clearly stats that you need Intel VT or AMD-V hardware. You need to check if your system has got that or not. If it has then there should be some setting in BIOS to enable it if not enabled by default.
thanks for your help guys, I'm a linux noob and trying my best to change that.
I now see what the commands mean, my old computer doesn't support virtualization at the cpu level.
which is what KVM takes advantage of.
I was trying to use my old computer to handle this, but i cannot luckily i have a newer quad-core desktop.
After researching for a little bit i found that my cpu in my newer comp comes with virtualization.
Sry i was trying to avoid using this computer, because it is my windows machine that i use to store all my movies, etc...
Just more work really than i was trying to get into.
also i do not want to dual boot, i don't like to.
Anyway thank you guys for helping me understand what is going on and sry if i seem daft sometimes.loll
