    Cannot install KVM!


    Hello,

    I want to install KVM in a RHEL 5.4 64bits. All I found pointed me to RHN, unfortunatelly my registration wih RHN expired (company policy).
    Is there any other way to install it?

    Thanks,

    Klaudio

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can get the RPMs from one of the Red Hat or clone mirror sites. You might want to consider switching to a free clone of RHEL such as CentOS or Scientific Linux. They won't block you from the repositories because of an expired registration.

    I've had good results with VirtualBox running on 5.4 and later. Also, Oracle has open sourced it now.
