Hi Xiaoning, The idea would be just build/distribute the version we pin in our versions.yaml. Even if we move to qemu-vanilla we will modify paths to not have path collisions (users can still use their host qemu but is something we don't test).
About conflicts I don't see any problem with it. I use standard VMs and kata in my servers without issues.

I'm trying to run Kata containers and regular QEMU-KVM VMs side by side on one same host. While I'm setting up the test environment, I'd like to check if there are any known conflicts between them?
I guess the question is mostly about possible conflicts between QEMU-lite and the vanilla QEMU, when they are running side by side. It seems the community is discussing moving to vanilla QEMU (https://github.com/kata-containers/runtime/issues/1397), but before that happens QEMU-lite is still the default option in releases.
Besides hypervisor, could there be other conflicts when we run Kata and full VMs together?
