Whenever I attempt to start a KVM virtual machine on Ubuntu 14.04 with the
kvm command, I get the following error:
qemu: could not load PC BIOS 'bios-256k.bin'
I have searched for this file and found it exists in the
/usr/share/qemu directory as a symlink to
../seabios/bios-256k.bin. When I attempt to view the contents of that directory with
ls, the system says that there is no such file or directory. However, I can
cd to that directory and view the BIOS file. When I type
ls .. from the
qemu directory, the only item that is returned is
qemu. I'm logged in as root, so I should be able to see all of the folders in
/usr/share. Does anyone know what is going on here?
