  1. 2. Pre-Installation Checks

    Then Ascertain KVM Can be Installed

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

    If in Output > 0 then your Processor support Hardware Virtualization!
    (But on a PC you may have still to enable it on BIOS…)
    Now again, first Install needed Tool with:

    sudo apt install cpu-checker

    And then Verify it:

    kvm-ok

    If it’s Good you will see:

    INFO: /dev/kvm exists
    KVM acceleration can be used
    

    Finally, if the answer is negative you can still use KVM but only in a Slow mode…

  2. 3. Installing KVM

    Now you are Ready to Install KVM on Debian System

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install qemu-kvm libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon-system

    Following Debian Documentation about KVM related Packages:

    • libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon-system provides libvirtd which you need to administer qemu and kvm instances using libvirt
    • qemu-kvm is the backend
