Hardware Virtualization on H6, orange PI PC 3

Recommended Posts

Is there Hardware virtualization support available for orange Pi PC3, which have H6 family processor ?


Can we port Xen hypervisor over it ?

H6 has hardware virtualization, and now with mainline kernel it's possible to run KVM on it.


For Xen, it's possible to port, but I don't know who wants to port ;-)
