OpenIndiana KVM Module for AMD CPUs

Installing kernel module

Please note: This module was compiled for the latest version of OpenIndiana, build 151a8. It might work on other version of OpenIndiana or OpenSolaris. If it doesn't, please let me know and I will build other versions.

Download openindiana-kvm-with-amd-support.tar.gz and copy it to your OpenIndiana system (using scp). Extract the files and copy the files to the following locations:

  • cp kvm /kernel/drv/amd64/
  • cp kvm.conf /kernel/drv/
  • cp /usr/lib/devfsadm/linkmod/

Next, add the module to your kernel using: add_drv kvm

You can verify that the driver installed and attached properly by checking for its presence in /dev: ls -l /dev/kvm
