In a devstack setup, the n-cpu service fails to start with the error:

InternalError: Nova requires QEMU version 2.5.0 or greater.

This message comes from: (

The EPEL repo provides the qemu package with version 2.0.0. Following the reply in: ( :

I removed the qemu-system-x86 package and tried installing centos' qemu-kvm-ev package. However, n-cpu fails to start because it cannot find qemu-system-x86_64 binary. The qemu-[kvm-]ev packages from Centos do not seem to provide that binary.

What is the way out?

Thanks, Sundar
