Indeed, it was disabled in the BIOS, after I enabled virtualisation,
/dev/kvm appeared.

And that is something I also added, since
$ ll /dev/kvm
crw-rw---- 1 root kvm 10, 232 16. Mär 21:49 /dev/kvm
has group "kvm".

I got another suggestion off the list to try as a stop-gap measure
an "mknod /dev/kvm c 10 232", which did not work; maybe because the
group was "root" instead of "kvm", but more likely because of the BIOS.

All the best,
