Long time, really long time there was no recommendation whatsoever of a movie. It must have been two years or something like that. Well, now there is something worth to mention which at least makes you think and proves Sundance Festival right for their considerations. Its "The East", an undercover agent infiltrates an eco-terorism group. No more spoilers, so go watch yourself:
While sandbox testing Apache CloudStack the management VM was no problem at all to setup, but the hypervisor VM through the virtual machine manager (virt-manager) threw:
Warning: KVM is not available. This may mean the KVM package is not installed, or the KVM kernel modules are not loaded. Your virtual machines may perform poorly.
You - most likely - lack nested virtualization support. When using Parallels version 9.0 and you want to setup a working VM capable of nested virtualization navigate to:
edit config.pvs and change the entry VirtualizedHV from 0 to 1.
Once you've restarted your VM you will notice that kvm_intel module has been loaded, the /dev/kvm file exists and the error thrown by virt-manager disappeared.
Lets assume you own a Mac Mini late 2011 or 2012 with OS X 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion and you want to exchange the slow HDD which came with your Mac in favor of a SSD. You will need the following for the whole process:
- an Apple ID
- a downloaded, not yet installed version of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
- 8GB or larger USB flash drive
- a screwdriver set
- 45 additional minutes
Now simply follow the instructions:
- Do not (!) format your SSD with any partition before plugging it in.
- Exchange the drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBongunj4pc
