Thank you for this application. It's a really good GUI for kvm, but it's not easy to find. Thus I'm writing some keywords for search engines:
This is a graphical interface for kvm / GUI for qemu.

It's a pity that it does not support qemu 0.9. Maybe I can help you with the support for version 0.9. Well I don't want to downgrade ;)

I will post a patch here.

OK, here is the patch:
http://stefan.endrullis.de/downloads/kvmms/kvmms_qemu_0.9.patch

What's new:
- compatible with version 0.8 and version 0.9 of qemu
- if you create a new hd image or import an old one, the new format qcow2 is used now, because since version 0.9 only qcow2 is able to save vm state using "savevm"
- fixed the problem that qemu fails on x86_64 systems with kqemu module loaded

If you have images in the format "qcow", you have to convert them manually in order to use kvmms with qemu 0.9:
qemu-img $old_img -O qcow2 $new_img

Thanks for the patch. I'll try to test it and make a release when I get a chance.

I haven't been using qemu much lately, so haven't had much motivation (nor time) to work on the project. If you'd like to help with / takeover maintenance, you're more than welcome, just let me know.

Sorry for my late response. Seems I've forgotten to select the "notification via email" checkbox.

Of course you can use my patch to update your kvmms download. If you have questions, please tell me. I could also test new releases.

Currently I have not much time and I'm not often using kvm, so I'm not the right person right now to take over maintenance.

When i start a new virtual machine and i try to install an os (Win or linux e.g.) the installer don't detect any hdd.

If i launch qemu by shell

qemu -hda 0.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot d -m 150

the problem is solved!!

Maybe there is a problem in the generation of the config file by kvmms!
