kqemu package is removed from the repositories, if you still need kqemu
support please compile 0.11 series and kqemu module yourself.

A few things:

* the contradictory message in the package itself:
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> Since kernel 2.6.29:
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> Qemu package now provides standard qemu with kvm
enabled. [2010-01-08 19:01]
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> PLEASE READ FOR KVM USAGE!
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> Load the correct KVM module, you will need a
KVM capable CPU!
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> Add yourself to the group 'kvm'.
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> Use 'qemu --enable-kvm' to use KVM.
[2010-01-08 19:01]
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> PLEASE READ FOR KQEMU USAGE!
[2010-01-08 19:01]>>> You need to install the 'kqemu' package for your
kernel. [2010-01-08 19:01]>>> You need to load the module to use qemu
with kqemu. [2010-01-08 19:01] upgraded qemu (0.11.1-1 -> 0.12.1-1)

* Let's use proper punctuation and capitalization around here. How about
this: With the release of qemu and qemu-kvm 0.12.X, the kqemu kernel
module is no longer supported and will be removed from the repositories.
You can safely uninstall it from your system.

* I had a hard time finding upstream documentation as to why this
deprecation happened, but I am guessing it is because KVM is the new
hotness. If that is correct, it might not hurt to add that to the note
as well.


Yes will change the install message.
Yes there is no mention in the changelogs, really strange.

I follow qemu/kvm and was totally blindsided by this, but eventually dug
this out. Sounds like it's just that nobody wanted to support it and it
was starting to cause real problems, which is totally reasonable, but it
was not very well publicized:


Doesn't kvm still require that you have virtualization support in your
processor? That was the remaining benefit of kqemu-- for people who
didn't have the processor instructions.

I am trying to install Debian 5.0.3 on AMD 64 platform. My motherboard
is ASUS K8U-X (Socket 754). I downloaded debian-503-amd64-netinst.iso
and chose "graphical expert install". Then I got this:

Undefined video mode number: 314

and was offered a selection of a number of text modes.

I continued installation in text mode, but now I am unable to run X. I
guess graphical login should appear, but instead the monitor turns off.
I can however switch to text console and use Debian in text mode.

Any ideas? I need graphical mode!
