Only kvm-amd module available with kernel native, on Intel computer

I wanted to run a VM, however, when I turned virt-manager on, it told me that the KVM support is not available. It turned out that I don’t have the kvm and kvm_intel modules available. Only, ironically, the kvm-amd.

$ find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -type f -name kvm*
/lib/modules/5.4.18-902.native/kernel/arch/x86/kvm/kvm-amd.ko

I’ve installed all the virtual bundles but to no avail. What is wrong?

They are built into the kernel, which is why you don’t see them as modules on the filesystem.

Make sure you’re user is in the kvm group and restart. I’ve seen people get that error message if not.

Thank you! It was the group.
