opensuse virtual machine


Hi! when i run "virtual machine manager" from yast (distribution is opensuse 10.3) it start loading the program and then nothing happens. when i run "create virtual machine", it displays the intro screen and after ive gone to "forward" button, there appears message: "The hypervisor is not running" and program crashes. is there any easy solution for this problem?

Boot menu

Are you booting from the Xen kernel?

i didnt know how xen works - i thought that is something like quemu. i have installed xen kernel and in yast i can run 'create virtual machine', but when i chose windows for operating system it says that the processor doesnt suport full virtualisation.
is there something else to run?

cpu info

type " grep vmx /proc/cpuinfo"(Intel) " grep pae /proc/cpuinfo"(either) " grep svm /proc/cpuinfo" (AMD).
If you have the PAE extension, you can runa virtual machine with xen, it just won't have the full hardware virtualization. The other two flags are for that.
It is something like qemu but not quite.

what is PAE? do i need to install xen kernel with PAE support?
when i type: "grep vmx /proc/cpuinfo" it says:

flags : fpu tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm syscall nx lm constant_tsc pni monitor ds_cpl vmx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr lahf_lm


that doesn't mean anything to me.

When I was using open Suse I installed XEN from Yast with all dependecyes and PAE was included,so I had XEN PAE option in boot menu.

Did you check if you have write access on win partitions?Can you find out what your processor doesn't support?
