Question: I got an error “libpci header check failed. Disable KVM Device Assignment capability” while compiling qemu-kvm package on Ubuntu server. Please tell me how to solve this error:
# ./configure warning: proceeding without pkg-config Error: libpci header check failed Disable KVM Device Assignment capability.
You need to install libpci-dev package to fix the error.
$ sudo apt-get install libpci-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

Now try configuring qemu-kvm and it should work.
