Description

Install a Fedora guest from an install tree URL using virt-install or virt-manager.

Setup

Nothing beyond initial test day setup.

How to test

Test OS detection on the URL

Note.png
Fedora 29 URLs are detected as Fedora 28

This will determine if the virt-install/virt-manager can detect an OS from the URL. Feel free to try this with as many different OS install trees that you want, and file a bug against virt-manager if the output doesn't match the expected results.

For F29, this looks like

virt-manager

  1. Run virt-manager (should autoconnect to qemu)
  2. Launch the 'New VM' wizard
  3. Choose the 'Network install' option
  4. Enter the following URL for the latest fedora development bits: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-29-20180910.n.0/compose/Workstation/x86_64/os/
  5. Press enter when the URL field is active: virt-manager should auto detect the URL as a recent fedora distro
  6. Proceed with through the wizard, using the default suggested values. On the final page, use the VM name: test-day-vm
  7. Start the install, and perform the install as you would on a normal machine.

virt-install

An example virt-install invocation looks like

sudo virt-install --name test-day-vm --ram 2048 --disk size=20 \
         --location https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-29-20180910.n.0/compose/Workstation/x86_64/os/

Expected Results

Guest installations start and perform without any issues. Guest is bootable after install completes.
