KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine

For a detailed installation manual please follow the KVM section on our Documentation server.

For ready images for KVM check openSUSE Tumbleweed JeOS or openSUSE Leap JeOS

KVM is a virtualization module in the Linux kernel that allows the kernel to function as a hypervisor.

To check if your processor supports VT (Virtualization Technology) for hardware assisted techonology try the command:

egrep --color '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

should return for an Intel CPU:

egrep --color '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo flags  : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx rdtscp lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts rep_good nopl xtopology nonstop_tsc aperfmperf pni pclmulqdq dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx smx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm sse4_1 sse4_2 x2apic popcnt aes xsave avx lahf_lm ida arat epb xsaveopt pln pts dts tpr_shadow vnmi flexpriority ept vpid
