How do i add vkms Kernel Module

i wouls like to try the vkms kernel module:

if i do a:
$lsmod | grep vkms

it tells me it is not installed,
According to this tutorial I should enable this module with:
$make nconfig
I get
make: *** No rule to make target 'nconfig'. Stop.
what do i do now

vkms module should be included in your installation by default – see modinfo vkms to check if you indeed have this in your system. You don’t see this module in lsmod because isn’t loaded to kernel. You can manually load module for current session via modprobe vkms.

If you want to load this module at startup, you need to add entry to /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf:

# List of modules to load at boot

Thank YOU so much!!!

Do you have good sources for the basics of kernel configuration?
So I get the basics right, and don’t have to ask such a question again?

What do you mean by kernel configuration? Compilation? – I don’t know anything about it, but Arch Wiki is good start. Basic configuration tools – see kernel parameters, sysctl and kernel modules. If you have more specific requirements – eg. security configuration or module/parameter specific options, you should search on the Internet or look into documentation.
