Hey gang,

I have been trying my hardest to get KVM running on a 32-bit CentOS 5.  I know
"upstream doesn't support it", but from what I gather, it *is* possible.

I've tried downloading the KVM source, but get nailed on compile with:

  LINK  i386-softmmu/qemu
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-308.1.1.el5PAE/build M=`pwd` \
                LINUXINCLUDE="-I`pwd`/include -Iinclude \
                 -Iarch/x86/include -I`pwd`/include-compat \
                -include include/linux/autoconf.h \
                -include `pwd`/x86/external-module-compat.h " \
                "$@"
  LD      /usr/local/kvm-88/kvm/kernel/x86/built-in.o
  CC [M]  /usr/local/kvm-88/kvm/kernel/x86/svm.o

Has anyone built RPM packages for this?  Ideas on how to compile?  I'm running
the kernel: 2.6.18-308.1.1.el5PAE

Thanks.

Bob
