Ovirt Node Spin

Summary

oVirt Node is a small scaled down version of Fedora used solely to hosts virtual machine guests.

Owner(s)

Moving to F16 target, the spin did not make it into Fedora 12 due to the current level of blacklisting.( Updated kickstart will remove blacklisting)

Detailed Description

oVirt Node is a small host image that provides libvirt service via KVM to hosts virtual machines. The Ovirt node can be run in standalone mode or in conjunction with different management servers, a web-based virtual machine management console. The ovirt Node Image is a livecd-based image that can be installed to the hosts physical storage, or run as a live image off a cd or usb key.

Benefit to Fedora

Easy way for users of Fedora and oVirt to download an oVirt NodeiImage. This lessens the difficulty by not requiring the user to build an ISO image or being distributed in a RPM.
