I installed qemu-kvm as follows (in rhel7.2):

yum install –y qemu-kvm virt-install bridge-utils libvirt libvirt-python libguestfs-tools

When I try to run the 'qemu-kvm' command as follows:

qemu-kvm –name VM1 -cdrom RedHat-7.2-x86_64.iso –m 512 -cpu 2 –drive file=/root/vm/redhat7.qcow2 -boot d

I get this error message:

bash: /usr/bin/qemu-kvm: No such file or directory

And why I try to use 'virt-install' as follows:

virt-install --name VM1 --memory 10240 --vcpus=2 --os-type=Linux --os-variant=rhel7.2 --location=rhel-server-7.6-x86_64-dvd.iso  --network network=default  --network bridge=nm-bridge --console pty,target_type=serial --graphics=vnc -v

I get this error message:

ERROR Host does not support virtualization type 'hvm'

I also get this message when it's jyst virt-install:

virt-install

ERROR Host does not support any virtualization options

Content of /usr/bin :

ls /usr/bin | grep -i qemu

Any ideas on what the problem might be or on how I can fix it ?

  • It doesn’t appear that your CPU supports virtualization. What are the flags in /process/cpuinfo? Are you running RHEL on a physical machine or is it a VM itself?

  • @jsbillings I'm running it on VMWare but I've enabled the virtualization for my CPU. When I run "cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i vmx" I get an output.

  • What does lsmod | grep kvm return?

  • kvm_intel 162153 0 \ kvm 525259 1 kvm_intel

  • Your user probably doesn’t have access to /dev/kvm. Try as a user that does, or as root,

I solved the issue by running:

ln -s /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm /usr/bin/qemu-kvm

It thought it didn't work at first because it showed me this error:

qemu-kvm: relocation error: /lib64/libspice-server.so.1: symbol SSL_CONF_CTX_set_ssl_ctx, version libssl.so.10 not defined in file libssl.so.10 with link time reference

Turned out I needed to update openssl, I ran:

yum update openssl

And it worked.
