Missing kvm.ko and kvm-intel.ko

Asked by kobeyoung81 on 2012-11-22

I recently removed kvm.ko and kvm-intel.ko kernel modules under /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/kernel/arch/x86/kvm/ directory in order to trouble-shoot a black screen issue. It turned out irrelevant . However, when I try to install qemu-kvm again, these two kernel modules keep missing out and I can't "sudo modprobe kvm". Any idea how to reinstall these kernel modules? Thank you very much for your help!

Open the Terminal, and copy the next line completely into it. It will reinstall the kernel and the modules:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-`uname -r`
