Hi
I really think that the distribution that you're using doesn't have any package called "qemu-kvm" => therefore the message "No package qemu-kvm available."
I think that recently "qemu" and "qemu-kvm" were merged into "qemu" => if you install the package "qemu" you might end up getting the executable "qemu-kvm" or if it's an even more recent version you just call the executable "qemu" with a parameter to activate the kvm support (look at the man pages to know exactly how it's called).

Thanks a lot pearl..!

I tried every possible way of installing... Tried

Yum install qemu

Yum install kvm-qemu

Yum install qeum-kvm

Every time am getting the same error. Even tried loading a qemu module with kmod.. It installed ok but still my virtualisation manager is asking for kvm-qemu.

Is there any other way? Please suggest

Thanks again..
