One problem with KQEMU is that modprobing the kernel module,
kqemu.ko, doesn’t automatically create
/dev/kqemu unless the proper udev rules are defined.
A cannonical udev rule file to get
/dev/kqemu created automatically when
kqemu.ko is loaded is:
# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/60-kqemu.rules KERNEL=="kqemu", NAME="%k", MODE="0666"'
Creating this file will tell udev to automatically create the corresponding special device file with permissions
0666 and owner
root.root, but this can be easily changed to specify a different user group so that only a limited number of users, members of that group, can access KQEMU.
