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


Fedora Virtualization List

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

KVM and QEMU Merge in Fedora 11

After some development delay, the KVM and QEMU package merge feature[1] of Fedora 11 has been marked as accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee[2].

"Currently, there is both a Package-x-generic-16.pngqemu package and Package-x-generic-16.pngkvm package. The KVM package's source is a fork of the QEMU source, but KVM regularily re-bases to the latest QEMU source and merging of KVM support into the QEMU code base is actively under-way."

Fedora Virtualization Status Report

After a few weeks off, Mark McLoughlin reached back into the future and produced an exhaustive status report[1] covering all the developments in fedora Virtualization for the last month. Grab a bowl of popcorn and dig in!

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 (using virt-install and custom kickstart to force PAE kernel installation to avoid the anaconda BUG[3])

Pasi 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.
