Using kqemu in debian

leave a comment »

kqemu is not available in any of official debian repos. (Google “kqemu” if you dont know what kqemu is. Also kqemu on wikipedia).

So, if your machine doesnot supports KVM (like mine), you’ll most probably feel the need of kqemu. To install kqemu on debian (confirmed on lenny), follow these:

NOTE: Run all commands below as root.

apt-get install module-assistant
m-a prepare
m-a update
m-a a-i kqemu

After this, open /etc/modules in you text editor and append kqemu after last line (mind you, there should be no other text in that line) i.e. append this line to /etc/modules:

kqemu

Now, restart your system and launch an OS inside qemu *as root* (kqemu wont be loaded with qemu if you are not root).

That’s it 🙂
