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

To use it, do e.g.

  $> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << EOF
  [rawvirt]
  name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 11
  baseurl=http://markmc.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f11/$basearch/
  enabled=1
  gpgcheck=0
  EOF
  $> yum update

Who might do such a thing? It turns out there are four kinds of people in the world.

  • 1) Users who want things to stay stable and who aren't necessarily expecting new features until they update to the next release of Fedora - these are people with just the updates repo enabled
  • 2) Same as (1) but who are willing to help out testing updates for the whole distro in order to catch things before they hit the people in category (1) - these people have the updates and updates-testing repos enabled
  • 3) Mostly the same as (1) or (2), but have a specific interest in testing new virt features and are willing to deal with virt regressions - these people enable the updates, updates-testing and preview repos
  • 4) People who are interested in helping with helping with F-12 development in general, not just virt - these people run rawhide
