Ask about QEMU and KVM

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I`ve searched for many documents about KVM and QEMU and some of the documents say that KVM can not create a Virtual Machine without QEMU, and some of them say that QEMU only handle the I/O task of VMs so can someone please explain what exactly QEMU does when I combine KVM with QEMU. I tried to create a VM with KVM, without QEMU and I succeed. by the way, I`m using Ubuntu Server 11.10 thanks for any supports :D (Hardware)
