    Indirect HDD install

    Dear member,

    I have installed Knoppix but like to install Suse Linux. A direct install while starting up doesn't work because the HDD can't be read.

    But after mounting I have the openSUSE.iso in /media/sr0

    "If you really want to boot an operating system inside a running Knoppix you can use qemu."

    But qemu can't be found.

    knoppix@Microknoppix:-$ qemu
    bash: qemu: command not found

    How can I solve this problem?

    Thank you.

    Yu have to use the wrappe script kvm if you want to run qemu.

    If your processor supports virtualization and it is enabled by the BIOS you can use kvm. Check for support by:

    egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo
    If you get the result "vmx" type
    modprobe kvm-intel
    otherwise if you get the result "svm" type
    modprobe kvm-amd
    to load the kvm module.
