Answer

HAXM is only needed on Windows and OS X. On Linux, you need to have KVM installed.

See the "Configuring VM Acceleration on Linux" section on: http://developer.android.com/tools/devices/emulator.html#accel-vm

Just download x86 based system images in the SDK Manager, then start the AVD, KVM will be auto-detected and used automatically if your machine/system supports it.
