Hello Linux Geeksters. Qemu is an open source virtualization software. Qemu enables running more OSes on the same machine. Qemu supports virtualization under Xen hypervisor or using the KVM kernel module.
As you may know, Qemu 1.5 has been just released. Because it is not available in any repository yet, we have to install it from sources.
This is how you install Qemu 1.5.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE and any other Linux distribution you prefer:
Download Qemu from the official site:
$ wget -c wiki.qemu-project.org/download/qemu-1.5.0.tar.bz2
Extract the archive and cd into it:
$ tar xjvf qemu-1.5.0.tar.bz2
$ cd qemu-1.5.0
$ sudo make install
$ sudo make clean
