Post Release Quirks

F10

Installing F10 DomU on F8 Dom0

On a F8 dom0. Installing F9 domU pulls kernel from releases/9/Fedora/x86_64/os/images/xen/vmlinuz this does not exist on F10 and thus creation fails. The version of Package-x-generic-16.pngpython-virtinst on F8 does not know the kernel path changed. Try this test version and give it some positive karma if it works for you.

Windows KVM Guest and Paravirt NIC Drivers

As seen in FWN#152. The Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-manager GUI doesn't have the knobs in the UI yet to enable virtio drivers. THe Package-x-generic-16.pnglibvirt framework underneath does support it, so it can be done by hand. Here's how.

  • Download the drivers to guest and extract on desktop.
  • Shutdown the guest virsh shutdown winxp
  • Dump the libvirt XML virsh dumpxml winxp > winxp-before.xml, and change the network settings. To the <interface> block add <model type='virtio'/> like this:
[root@seitan virt]# diff -u winxp-before.xml winxp-after.xml 
--- winxp-before.xml	2008-12-01 17:37:39.000000000 -0800
+++ winxp-after.xml	2008-12-01 17:39:21.000000000 -0800
@@ -26,6 +26,7 @@
       <readonly/>
     </disk>
     <interface type='network'>
+      <model type='virtio'/>
       <mac address='54:52:00:03:09:01'/>
       <source network='default'/>
       <target dev='vnet0'/>
  • Redefine the domain with the altered config: virsh define winxp-after.xml
  • Start the guest virsh start winxp, and install the drivers within Windows when the new hardware detection wizard pops up.
