General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_KVM has multiple definitions:

found in arch/powerpc/kvm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KVM:

Help text

(none)

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) support found in arch/arm/kvm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KVM:

Help text

Support hosting virtualized guest machines. You will also need to select one or more of the processor modules below.

This module provides access to the hardware capabilities through a character device node named /dev/kvm.

If unsure, say N.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) support found in arch/arm64/kvm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KVM:

Help text

If unsure, say N.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) support found in arch/ia64/kvm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_KVM:

Help text

Support hosting fully virtualized guest machines using hardware virtualization extensions. You will need a fairly recent processor equipped with virtualization extensions. You will also need to select one or more of the processor modules below.

This module provides access to the hardware capabilities through a character device node named /dev/kvm.

To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will be called kvm.

If unsure, say N.
