comment How Long do the Contents of the .bash_history File Last?
note: if you do raise HISTSIZE's limit, consider changing HISTFILE too. If you run bash --norc HISTSIZE will go back to the default value, truncating your HISTFILE on exit.

you can use qemu, which uses kvm, as a normal user; without being root. now libvirt imposes a few restrictions on it's api for qemu:///session uris, but using the kvm module doesn't require being root.
