Hi Eric,

I go through this entire video. And I understand the setting up KVM on Linux.

My Problem is that my processor doesn't support hardware virtualisation, hence I couldn,t install kvm.

Is there any way I could run android emulator without installing kvm? Or is there any other hardware accelerator rather than KVM, I could use to boost emulator?

Desperately waiting for your answer.

Computor config: Intel x86 atom processor, codename Pineview, 1gb ram 32 bit Ubuntu OS.

Thank you.

Hello there Lokesh.  You can run the Android emulator without KVM but it will run much slower.  Looking at your processor specs I see that virtualization is not a supported feature of that processor.  To really take advantage of hardware acceleration with KVM you must use an Intel(r) processor with virtualization support.  You can go to http://ark.intel.com/ to get details about any Intel processor to confirm if virtualization is a supported feature.
