Virtualization

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

Contributing Writer: Dale Bewley

Fedora Virtualization List

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

Fedora virt status

The latest status report[1] from Mark McLoughlin Prompts us all to help out as the Fedora 12 "Beta is on its way out the door and release candidate composes will begin in less than four weeks time." "Here are three ways you could help out with getting F12 into great shape." Continue reading in the archive to find out how you can help!

New Tools virt-rescue and virt-edit

Richard Jones announced[1] two new tools in Package-x-generic-16.pnglibguestfs-tools, virt-rescue and virt-edit.

The virt-rescue[2] tool "lets you run a rescue shell against a virtual machine" while virt-edit[3] lets you edit a file inside a VM". For example:

virt-edit mydomain /boot/grub/grub.conf

Fedora Xen List

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

xen/master: pvops git trees rearranged

Pasi Kärkkäinen forwarded[1] an announcement from Jeremy Fitzhardinge about reorganizing the Xen git tree[2] with the dom0 kernel.

"The kernel tree is fairly featureful:"

  • basic dom0 support
  • blkback
  • netback
  • ACPI power management
  • S3 suspend/resume (at least for some people)
  • microcode update
  • MSI support

"In other words, it has as much as it ever has. There are a few notable missing features:"

  • blktap2
  • netchannel2
  • pci front/back
  • upstream Linux support
  • your pet feature

The Xensource wiki has instructions[3] compiling.
