    kvm was not starting .

    this returned nothing:

    Code:
    lsmod|grep kvm
    
    then this made kvm start
    Code:
    modprobe kvm_intel
    
    lsmod|grep kvm
    kvm_intel  172032  0
    kvm  544768  1 kvm_intel
    irqbypass  16384  1 kvm
    
    Of course by default the module should load at boot.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this ? It was probably caused by something I did.

    Add kvm_intel to this file: /etc/modules
    and run: update-grub

    as expected that worked. I wonder why it was needed.
