Moving on from my getting Nvidia working in Debian for my laptop, I thought I’d move onto the server and have a play with KVM Virtualization. I’ve experiance with VMware and Hyper-V and Virtualization using RHEL, but that’s with a GUI and I wanted to everything from scratch. I did the Debian minimal installation so I new I didn’t have anything I didn’t want. I then did this.
apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin
A lot of extra dependencies were added as well. Once I’d done this, I rebooted just to make sure.
To make sure it was up and working, you can run the following command to check it’s all working
- virsh list –all
You should see something like this. All this is telling you is what VM’s are running currently.
That’s all I had to do to get it working.
From that point on, all I needed to do was install virt-manager onto my laptop, setup keys so that virt-manager could log onto the server, upload a few iso images and install some vms, but that can be for another post.
Look Look Virtual Machines Running 😀
