It seems that kqemu support is not compiled in for this repo, correct?
Instead, as the kqemu kernel module is in rpmfusion, I presume that the
stock f11 qemu has this support built in....
Am I wrong?
I do think you are wrong, as you found out below; we have kqemu specifically
disabled. kqemu is going away, and in fact has been ripped out of upstream
qemu, because it only kind-of sort-of works some of the time.
Any problems to compile kqemu support ?
On another server, tried to rebuild qemu-0.11.0-2.fc11.src.rpm (from
fedora-virt) after installing kqemu from rpmfusion.
But while if I take the source I get kqemu as enabled in configure
script, in rpmbuild I don't get so.
I notice that inside the qemu tar.gz as provided by the source.rpm there
are three lines below in the top configure script:
if [ "$cpu" = "i386" -o "$cpu" = "x86_64" ] ;
So I commented out the kqemu="no" line... and built the package (not
touching the other two configure scripts that seems related to kvm...)
After installing, if I run qem-kvm or qemu without kqemu all is ok.
[root@tekkaman bin]# ./qemu --enable-kqemu

For Kqemu now gplv2, are there any barriers to have it included in
Yes, it's completely unmaintained, not upstream, and never will be. Sorry, the
way of the future is KVM (and possibly Xen dom0 support, if and when it makes it
into upstream Linux).
