qemu-kvm package is missing on CentOS [CLOSED]

0 votes
113 views

I just did a clean net install of CentOS 6.4 and when I run virt-manager it says that qemu-kvm is missing, but when I try to install it with yum it says that there isn't a package with that name. Is something wrong with my configuration? Or what is causing this package to appear as not available?

Kvm is not supported on 32bit installs in rhel/centos.

answer Aug 9, 2013 by Jagan Mishra
Google told me:
"Whilst previous versions of RHEL supported KVM on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems, as of RHEL 5.4 support for KVM virtualization is only available for 64-bit (x86_64 architecture) versions of the operating system."

Is it possible to get the QEMU guest agent on a CentOS 5.11 virtual machine? Has anyone installed from source? I am running the VM on a CentOS 7 virtual host with qemu-1.5.3.

I am using CentOS 6.4 on 4 servers, guests are also CentOS 6.4

Network is setup using virtio, and vhost, this works well but sometime I see connection issue from application to DB.

I found that sometimes latency increases from 0.200 ms approx to 123ms or even more sometimes, this happens only for 1-2 packets but keep happening after sometime.

CPU load remains under 1, CPU usages is around 20-30%.

If I ping from host machine to host machine then there is consistent latency, this only happens when ping from a guest machine to either other guest machines or a host machine.

Did anyone face similar issue?

I just received a Supermicro server back from factory repair. Installed CentOS 6.3 x86_64 fresh from DVD (tried with 6.4, same result). Everything goes fine until i install Virtualization* yum groups. Virtualization is enabled in BIOS. Server boots, CentOS loads and i have even a login prompt. If i'm fast enough to enter login name and password, shell works for about 10 sec. Then, it seems to hang. Pressing CTRL-C seems to work as i see it on screen (CTRL-C text).

I'm used to Xen in CentOS 5 where we can choose a non-Xen kernel at boot time. With CentOS 6 and KVM, i'm kinda lost! I Googled a lot and didn't find anything to disable KVM / select a a non-KVM kernel a boot up time. The server has been repaired but i'm not sure if there is still other problems that prevent KVM to work. I know that they installed the last BIOS version. I have other identical servers that works well with KVM. I tried to disable all i saw for virtualization support in BIOS, result is the same. I did memtest86 tests without problem.

Here are the specs:

Supermicro 6026T-3RF (mainboard X8DT3-S)
BIOS 03/17/12 15:50:21 Ver 2.1
Xeon E5520
Kingston 12 Gig RAM (Triple Channel)
LSI 9240-8i

What should i do to debug this? Any pointers, URL, etc would be greatly appreciated!

I want to install path.py in my Python 3.4 environment on a Centos 5 box. My /usr/local/bin/ contains:

easy_install-3.4 
python3.4  
etc. 

We are behind a proxy server and I tried this:

# /usr/local/bin/easy_install-3.4 path.py 

Searching for path.py 
Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/ 
Download error on https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/: hostname '172.29.68.1  
' doesn't match either of 'www.python.org', 'python.org', 'pypi.python.org',  
'docs.python.org', 'testpypi.python.org', 'bugs.python.org', 'wiki.python.org',  
'hg.python.org', 'mail.python.org', 'packaging.python.org', 'pythonhosted.org',  
'www.pythonhosted.org', 'test.pythonhosted.org', 'us.pycon.org', 'id.python.org' --  
Some packages may not be found! 

Couldn't find index page for 'path.py' (maybe misspelled?), Am I best to use pip or easy_install? also if easy_install, how can I fix the above error?
