Debian build 16.06 KVM support?


#1

Does the Debian build 16.06 support KVM? And if yes is there any resource available which explains how to do it?


#2

Previous threads below do indicate that KVM is supported. @maz Are you able to provide some guide/resources to help get @Jeeppler started please?
Thanks!

Between RPB 16.03 and RPB 16.06 the kernel configuration changed the default page size from 4K to 64K (this can boost performance for some workloads). However due to the HI6220 system architecture this change also prevents KVM from working. Thus I believe to get KVM to work with the RPB 16.06 build it will necessary to recompile the kernel to enable 4k page support.

@danielt thank you for the clarification. I link the KVM bug report here again: https://bugs.96boards.org/show_bug.cgi?id=402
