Unable to start Qemu: Permission denied


I'm receiving an error when trying to use Aqemu with qemu and KVM. For some reason it won't let me start it. Thoughts?

Agemu looks really interesting, thanks for pointing it out to me.

Load the kvm module before starting aqemu. for instance I have this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
Code:
modprobe kvm-intel
Of course for an AMD CPU the command would be:
Code:
modprobe kvm-amd

What command did you type?

PS If you just included it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local it will be run only at next boot. Then type it in a terminal before starting aqemu.

What gives "lsmod|grep kvm" ?

In any case you should only type one command, that is relevant for your CPU (uname -a will tell you if it's Intel or AMD)

So, that should be the good module. Try opening a new terminal and type aqemu in it.

This may sound stupid... but did you install qemu or just aqemu...?

I've just used qemu and kick it off with a command line script... but aqemu does not include qemu.. which it needs.

Everything else seems good tho from what I read above.
