Android Studio and I need to add Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator to it's not compatible with Linux. Is there any software I could use instead and how would I install it onto Android Studio?
Check if your CPU supports hardware virtualization, by typing:
egrep -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo
If the result is 0, your CPU does not support hardware virtualization, which is necessary to run the KVM. If you get 1 or more, that means you’re fine.
Next, install KVM. First make sure if your processor supports KVM by typing:
You will see this if that’s the case:
INFO: Your CPU supports KVM extensions INFO: /dev/kvm exists KVM acceleration can be used
If this is the result, you need to turn on
Intel VT in BIOS:
INFO: KVM is disabled by your BIOS HINT: Enter your BIOS setup and enable Virtualization Technology (VT), and then hard poweroff/poweron your system KVM acceleration can NOT be used
The next step is to install the KVM and a few other packages needed. To do so, type:
sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin ubuntu-vm-builder bridge-utils
Add your user to some groups, replacing by your own username:
sudo adduser <user> libvirtd sudo adduser <user> kvm
Check if everything is ok:
sudo virsh -c qemu:///system list
