The Virtualization Preview Repository 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.

Target Audience

Who might be interested in virt preview? 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 Fedora <next> development in general, not just virt - these people run rawhide

Enabling the Virtualization Preview Repository

Preview packages may be installed using yum after performing the following step.

For Fedora 12 Users:

$> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << 'EOF'

baseurl=http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f12/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
EOF
$> yum update

For Fedora 13 Users:

$> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << 'EOF'
[rawvirt]
name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 13
baseurl=http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f13/$basearch/
