In order to run a virtual machine, VirtualBox tells me to disable the KVM kernel module. I googled around and found out that KVM is included in the
qemu-*-packages, but none of them is/was installed on my system (Debian Wheezy).
After that I simply tried to unload the module, but this doesn't want to work because it is in use:
# modprobe -r kvm_intel FATAL: Module kvm_intel is in use. # modprobe -r kvm FATAL: Module kvm is in use.
I don't know what program is using it and I have really no idea what that could be. I also tried with the
-f option but I get the same result.
My question is: How can I remove or disable the KVM Kernel module?
Here is the output of the
# lsmod | grep kvm kvm_intel 138825 3 kvm 404853 1 kvm_intel
