Description of problem:
You can't run kvm..
[root@oinik kvm]# qemu-kvm
Could not access KVM kernel module: No such file or directory
failed to initialize KVM: No such file or directory
No accelerator found!
open("/dev/kvm", O_RDWR|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
write(2, "Could not access KVM kernel modu"..., 62Could not access KVM kernel module: No such file or directory
The kvm kernel module appears to be loaded, but the dev file isn't there.
i tried insmod and modprobe with no errors. and i dont see the kvm device anywhere in /sys either.
This is happening with the 3.0.0-1.fc16.x86_64 and rc4 kernel.
This is an intel sandy bridge2 processor with efi. But i don't think that is the issue.
You can close this. The virtualization extensions on my machine were disabled at some point.
