It´s the *stable* release of kvm, because in 12.2´s tree there was the
development release (kvm-NN). I´ve been working with the development
release without any issue until now
(http://hba.ath.cx/projects/slackbuilds/testing/kvm-88) but never
tested it in an x86_64 system.

BTW, it seems to me that there´s a bug in your SlackBuild, in kvm.info
you have this:


But in kvm.SlackBuild you have:

tar xvf $CWD/$PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz

Notice that inside your SlackBuild, $PRGNAM-$VERSION will be
'kvm-0.10.6.tar.gz',but this value does not correspond with the name
of the file you´ve downloaded, 'qemu-kvm-0.10.6.tar.gz'.

Anyway, pardon me if i´m wrong... i´m in windows so i´ve not tested
your SlackBuild ;-)
