Revision as of 00:53, 14 April 2015

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

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 F21 alpha, 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://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/22_Beta_RC1/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=10 \
         --location https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/22_Beta_RC1/Workstation/x86_64/os/

Expected Results

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