Rawvirt Rawhide Virtualization for Fedora 12

Justin Forbes announced[1] "As was done for Fedora 11 users, the tradition continues, only the locations have changed.

We've set up a repository for people running Fedora 12 who would like to test the rawhide/F13 virt packages. To use it, do e.g."

  $> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << EOF
  [rawvirt]
  name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 12
  baseurl=http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f12/$basearch/
  enabled=1
  gpgcheck=0
  EOF
  $> yum update

The Virtualization Preview Repository[2] is for people who would like to test the very latest virtualization related packages. This repository is intended primarily as an aid to testing / early experimentation. It is not intended for 'production' deployment.
