- Modern Linux distribution (Ubuntu 10.04 or newer recommended)
- Processor with virtualization support (only needed if you use KVM virtual machines; not needed if you only use User-Mode-Linux or dynamips). You can check whether your processor has support for virtualization extensions using:
- kvm-ok command if available in your system:
# kvm-ok INFO: Your CPU supports KVM extensions INFO: /dev/kvm exists KVM acceleration can be used
egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo
If you see the word vmx (for Intel processors) or svm (for AMD processors) in red, your processor has virtualization support.
IMPORTANT: Be aware that virtualization extensions are controled from the BIOS. Even if you see the vmx/svm flag you will have to access your BIOS setup and check that virtualization support is enabled. If you get the following error message:
FATAL: Error inserting kvm_intel (...): Operation not supported
it probably means that virtualization support is disabled in your BIOS setup.
