Description Zdenek Kabelac 2008-12-15 07:44:18 EST
Description of problem:

I've just noticed that qemu-kvm generates coredump when it's started and kvm module is not inserted in memory - I think some nice error message would be better here:

Additional info:
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2009-03-11 08:38:44 EDT
Reassigning: The kvm package no longer exists in rawhide/F11, since it is now part of 'qemu'.
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2009-03-20 13:34:00 EDT
This looks like a plausible fix:


Was in kvm-80, so closing as fixed in rawhide
