7 Daniel,
8 thanks for your help in this matter. i have linux-2.6.31-gentoo and kvm-88-r1 installed.
9 i removed kvm-kmod-88-r1 and tried the in kernel modules but it was to no avail. when
10 attempting to modprobe kvm-intel i get an "unknown symbol" error. i also tried it with
11 everything compiled in the kernel but that didn't work either. no /dev/kvm is created
12 so kvm is automatically disabled. i filed a bug with kvm's maintainer on the sourceforge
13 tracker but don't hold out a lot of hope as there are a lot of open bugs on it. i also
14 contacted intel support and escalated the posting today so i will have to wait and see.
15 and last but not least i posted on in "other things gentoo" but have
16 yet to receive any replies. if you have any further ideas i would be glad to hear them.
17 once again thanks for you help in this matter.
19 best regards,
20 James Erickson
