Install a Fedora guest from an install tree URL using virt-install or virt-manager.


Nothing beyond initial test day setup.

How to test


  1. Run virt-manager (should autoconnect to qemu)
  2. Launch the 'New VM' wizard
  3. Enter any name, choose network install option
  4. Enter the following URL (latest F18 development bits):
  5. Press enter when the URL field is active: virt-manager should auto detect the URL as a recent fedora distro
  6. Proceed with through the wizard, using the default suggested values.
  7. Start the install, and perform the install as you would on a normal machine.


An example virt-install invocation looks like

 $> virt-install --name fedoratestday --ram 1024 \
        --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/fedoratestday.img,size=10 \

Expected Results

Guest installations start and perform without any issues. Guest is bootable after install completes.
