14.0 > System > qemu (1.6.0)

QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for
one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC).
By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performances.

qemu (with kvm enabled) achieves near native performances by leveraging
the kvm-kmod modules and executing the guest code directly on the host
CPU. Slackware provides pre-built 32/64 bit x86 kvm-kmod modules or you
can build different versions with the kvm-kmod package.

By default, this script builds only the x86 and arm emulation targets
for qemu; if you prefer to build all supported targets, do this:

TARGETS=all ./qemu.SlackBuild

We patch the installed udev rules to require membership in "users"
group instead of a custom "kvm" group to uses /dev/kvm. If you prefer
something different, then run the build script like this:

KVMGROUP=group ./qemu.SlackBuild

Don't forget to load the 'kvm-intel' or 'kvm-amd' module (depending on
your processor) prior to launching qemu-system-ARCH with kvm enabled.
For older/unmaintained qemu frontends, this build also creates a symlink
to qemu-system-ARCH at /usr/bin/qemu-kvm.

spice and usbredir are optional dependencies.
