What to test?
Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization in Fedora 35. We will be interested covering the regular virt-install, KVM, Boxes, Vbox.
The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion.

What's needed to test
For starters, your physical machine should have:
- Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see Is My Guest Using KVM?).
- Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
- Get the packages with:
dnf groupinstall virtualization
As for getting the latest virt packages, you have a few options:
Fedora 35 on a physical machine
The preferred testing platform is a fully updated Fedora 35 machine. You have a few options for getting the Fedora 35 bits:
Install with CD/DVD
You can download the latest Fedora 35 composes here:
- Workstation live .ISO: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/35/latest-Fedora-35/compose/Workstation/
- Server DVD: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/35/latest-Fedora-35/compose/Server/
- cloud image: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/35/latest-Fedora-35/compose/Cloud/
Run Fedora 35 in a VM with nested virtualization
Do you have a new machine with a ton of ram and storage space, running Fedora 33/34? Nested virt might be an option! This allows you to create KVM guests inside a Fedora 35 VM.
