Virtualization

In this section, we cover discussion on the @et-mgmnt-tools-list, @fedora-xen-list, @libvirt-list and @ovirt-devel-list of Fedora virtualization technologies.

Contributing Writer: Dale Bewley

Enterprise Management Tools List

This section contains the discussion happening on the et-mgmt-tools list


Fedora Virtualization List

This section contains the discussion happening on the fedora-virt list.


Fedora Xen List

This section contains the discussion happening on the fedora-xen list.

Success with Experimental Fedora 10 pv_ops dom0

Users are continuing to build experimental kernels with pv_ops dom0[1] support. Pasi Kärkkäinen was happy to report[2] success getting a "custom Xen pv_ops dom0 kernel working with virt-install and/or Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-manager on Fedora 10".

"I was able to run the following on Fedora 10 32bit PAE pv_ops dom0:"

  • CentOS 5.3 32bit PAE PV domU
  • Fedora 10 32bit PAE PV domU
  • Use virt-install to install Fedora 10 32bit PAE PV domU (using custom kickstart to force PAE kernel installation to avoid the anaconda BUG[3])

Pasi's was successful by using:

  • pv_ops dom0 kernel (2.6.29-rc8 or newer) "Compile with CONFIG_HIGHPTE=n since it seems to be broken still"
  • Package-x-generic-16.pnglibvirt 0.6.1 and related packages from Fedora 10 updates-testing
  • Package-x-generic-16.pngxen 3.3.1-9 packages from rawhide/F11 rebuilt for F10
  • LVM volumes for domU disks (tap:aio is not yet supported by pv_ops dom0 kernel)

Libvirt List

This section contains the discussion happening on the libvir-list.


oVirt Devel List

This section contains the discussion happening on the ovirt-devel list.
