    I have almost got the vMX installed now. I have loaded the correct module and written a document for the process, but now I have one small issue that hopefully someone has come across and can help with:


    I have followed the manual for the /dev/kvm directory permissions and now have the following output from "ls -l /dev/kvm


    crw-rw----+ 1 root libvirtd 10


    But the error I get at the end of the "sudo ./vmx.sh -lv --install" command is this:


    error: failed to start domain vcp-vmx1

    error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: Could not access KVM kernel module: Permission denied

    failed to initialise KVM: Permission denied


    Any know why this would happen please?

    Yet another issue that I did a little test with and for some reason worked:


    sudo rmmod kvm_intel

    sudo rmmod kvm

    sudo modprobe kvm

    sudo modprobe kvm_intel
