Install KVM on Ubuntu 14.04

First install needed packages:

sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin bridge-utils

And configure a network bridge in /etc/network/interfaces. Here is my complete file:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug eth0
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

auto br0
iface br0 inet dhcp
        bridge_ports eth0
        bridge_stp on
        bridge_maxwait 0
        bridge_fd 0

Ubuntu Realtek ALC1150

I got a new mainboard with Realtek ALC1150 onboard sound. First I was thinking it doesn’t work, but it only was very silent. Here is how to fix this:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/alsa-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms
sudo reboot
