Android Studio Emulator "/dev/kvm is not found"

Re-installing HAXM resolved my problem Steps:

  1. Make sure SDK Manager -> Extras -> Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer) is installed
  2. Navigate to <sdk>/extras/intel/Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager/
  3. Run ./HAXM\ installation -u
  4. Run ./HAXM\ installation

For MacOS users running Android Studio, when you get this error then try these steps to open up your privacy settings.

Thank you Apple for pushing me with your dumb*** app review rules from iOS to android development

You just need to "start" the HAXM. You can do this following this steps:

  1. Open the cmd.
  2. Type sc query intelhaxm, click enter and check the STATE.
  3. If state is 1 STOPED, type sc start intelhaxm and click enter to start the HAXM.
  4. Check the STATE again and it should be 4 RUNNING now.
  5. Finally, you are now able to create and use your AVD using a x86 emulator.

Alternatively, when you want to stop the HAXM you should type sc stop intelhaxm.

Hope this helps y'all.
