KVM on openSUSE 11.4

KVM hasn't been as popular as the XEN hypervisor on the SUSE/openSUSE platform. However, Red Hat has been instrumental in drumming up interest and support for KVM in the past couple of years. I still feel that XEN has a greater support (as in official support that is!) for "Enterprise" apps like SAP and such, but the inner geek in me is absolutely trembling with joy for KVM support since openSUSE 11.3 and in SLES/SLED 11 SP1.

For those who want to get KVM on openSUSE 11.4, have a look at the excellent article at http://howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-kvm-on-an-opensuse-11.4-server

Enjoy....now back to work....and happy hacking!!
