how to simplify installation of kvm


Hi experts,

so the steps to install kvm is this:

Code:
sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin bridge-utils virt-manager
according to this webpage: http://www.howtogeek.com/117635/how-...nes-on-ubuntu/

Can I make this simpler?

I want to do just one command: sudo apt-get install kvm, and it should call and install all these packages.

Thanks

as it was explained on that linked page:
Quote:
Use the following command to install KVM and supporting packages. Virt-Manager is a graphical application for managing your virtual machines you can use the kvm command directly, but libvirt and Virt-Manager simplify the process.
You do not need to install all of them, they are not required, just they make it a bit better.

That WAS one command. sudo apt-get is the command... The rest are what apt-get is supposed to do.

Was going to say the same thing, this is already one command, and was already simplified. I guess you can also add a -y at the end of it (if you are sure all the packages are right), so you can just put password and let it rip
