- add your name here
 What's needed to test
- A fully updated Fedora 12 Rawhide machine. See instructions on the main test day page.
- At least one guest image installed before the test day (suggested reading - Virtualization_Quick_Start)
 How to test
Testing this feature is very straightforward:
- Edit an existing guests configuration using
- Set the
- <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc'>hvm</type>
- Check the newly saved configuration using
- Verify the
machineattribute is now
- <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-0.11'>hvm</type>
- Start the guest and verify that it boots correctly as before
That's it! The idea is that we record the ABI version number of the
pc machine type in the guest configuration so that when qemu is updated in future, we will continue using the same ABI.
