Is it possible to have KVM enabled in the Alpine VM?

It’d be very nice to have KVM enabled in the Alpine Linux VM that Docker for Mac is using. Is it possible?

Hi Ivan

We currently have no plans to support KVM inside the Linux VM. It would require implementing nested virtualization, which is definitely non-trivial.


I would also like KVM enabled, not the full package but the kernel module so that

modprobe kvm

would work.

In addition I do also need the OpenVSwitch kernel module

modprobe openvswitch

Without these I can not use Docker Mac but have to stay with the boot2docker/DOCKER_HOST solution.
This is very unfortunate. Any pointers on how I could rebuild the kernel and install into the VM may help.
