Google did the trick here:

hxxp://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Installing_KVM_Virtualization_on_RHEL_6

Just follow the instructions written there - it worked fine for me a while ago.


Goodluck.

Spell out your words. And you can run VirtualBox easily, too. But there are two problems with what you've posted:
  • The "yum groupall kvm" is invalid. Do you mean "yum groupinstall kvm"?
  • The "kvm"...that's kernel virtual machine. Do you have the KVM enabled kernel loaded?
  • Are you paying for RHEL? And is that the FULL text of the error you're getting? Because if you're not paying, you won't be able to load ANYTHING from the online repositories.

He must have typed "yum groupinstall kvm" else he would have gotten something along the lines of invaild command in terminal.

My guess is that he is running an unregistered copy of RHEL.

If one does not have a license for RHEL, they may consider CentOS or Scientific Linux.
