  2. Install Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-manager (or Package-x-generic-16.pnglibvirt) and Package-x-generic-16.pngxen to control Xen virtual machines)

How to test

  1. Create a virtual machine and boot the current development release in it using the HTTP/NFS install. This can be accomplished using the virt-install command or by using the graphical utility virt-manager. For example:

virt-install -l http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/16/Fedora/x86_64 --ram 1024 --disk /dev/vg_guest/guest --name guest

  1. Hit run to boot the guest from the provided HTTP/NFS link
  2. Proceed with normal installation

Expected Results

  1. The installer successfully boots from the HTTP/NFS link
  2. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual network device(s)
  3. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual storage device(s)
  4. The install completes successfully
  5. The system reboots successfully, recognizing filesystems created on the virt device(s)
