Loading kvm-intel module for qemu-kvm 0.11.0


Code:
root@tpx200:~# modprobe kvm-intel
FATAL: Error inserting kvm_intel (/lib/modules/2.6.31/kernel/arch/x86/kvm/kvm-intel.ko): Operation not supported
Any ideas as to what's going on here?

Is your BIOS capable of virtualization and/or is it turned on in your BIOS?

I have Sony Vaio VGN-SR11MR laptop. The processor supports VT, but it was blocked by BIOS. And there was no option in BIOS to switch this on! But...

A very dirty (actually it was very clean) hack from http://levicki.net/downloads/ (look here http://levicki.net/articles/tips/200...o_EFI_BIOS.php).
Unfortuantely I did it some long time ago and didn't write up the recepie. But after some googling you should be able to do the same.

Thanks to this I can use VT of my Intel processor now.

brgrds,
Vladimir

Well, luckily I had the options to enable Virtualization support in my BIOS and I did. Everything is working just fine now. I had to work out the permission problems with /dev/kvm afterward, but that wasn't a big deal.

Thank you both for your help!

Glad you got it sorted out so quickly!

What permission problems did you encounter and how did you resolve them? It could help others that run into a similar situation.

In the source package, there's a udev rule. I followed the instructions from the SlackBuild to create the group, and add myself to that group.
