No libguestfs on Fedora 10

Ján ONDREJ referenced[1] FWN[2] when asking if Richard Jones would consider including Package-x-generic-16.pngqemu-0.10 into Package-x-generic-16.pnglibguestfs package to satisfy dependencies for Fedora 10.

Richard "had a go at backporting the changes to qemu that we ship in F-10. qemu in F-10 is based on qemu 0.9, and doesn't include the vmchannel patch." But "ended up with a qemu which compiled, but kept segfaulting, and it was tricky to diagnose exactly why."

"Is it really a problem to use the libguestfs[3] and/or qemu[4] packages from Fedora 11 builds? You can grab the latest builds out of Koji." "This worked OK for me, although I have now moved to using Fedora 11-Preview, and have mostly abandoned Fedora 10."

Daniel B and Mark Mc concurred, Fedora 11 is the place to get libguestfs .

  • RAS[3] features: cpu and memory offlining
  • Power management - improved frequency/voltage controls and deep-sleep support. Scheduler and timers optimised for peak power savings.
  • Support for the Viridian (Hyper-V) enlightenment interface
  • Many other x86 and ia64 enhancements and fixes
