Virtualization

Virtual Machine Manager Support for SPICE

With Fedora 15, virt-manager has been updated to support Spice, the complete open source solution for interaction with virtualized desktop. It's now possible to create a virtual machine with Spice support without touching the command line, and benefiting all the Spice enhancements without hassles directly from virt-manager. Thanks to the spice-gtk library, you can also develop a client in Python or C, or with gobject-introspection bindings.

...

virt-manager can currently manage QEMU VMs with VNC. It provides the ability to connect and display VNC (with various functionalities such as credentials, screenshot, send special keys, ssh tuneling, display scaling)

This feature is about supporting Spice at the same level, so that fedora users can benefits Spice goodness easily when creating VM (Features/Spice) and avoiding command lines.

Other Improvements

Virtualization Technology Preview Repo

The Virtualization Preview Repository exists for people who would like to test the very latest virtualization related packages. This repo is intended primarily as an aid to testing and early experimentation. It is not intended for 'production' deployment.

For further details refer to:

Xen Kernel Support

The kernel package in Fedora 14 supports booting as a guest domU, but will not function as a dom0 until such support is provided upstream.

The most recent Fedora release with dom0 support is Fedora 8.

Booting a Xen domU guest within a Fedora 14 host requires the KVM based xenner. Xenner runs the guest kernel and a small Xen emulator together as a KVM guest.

KVM requires hardware virtualization features in the host system.
Systems lacking hardware virtualization do not support Xen guests at this time.
