Overview

Virtualization on Fedora [30], including:

  • KVM
  • QEMU
  • libvirt

Check for virtualization support

These extensions are called Intel VT or AMD-V.

$ egrep '^flags.*(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo

If this command results in nothing printed, your system does not support the relevant virtualization extensions. You can still use QEMU/KVM, but the emulator will fall back to software virtualization, which is much slower.
