Re: [libvirt] VMWare support, any news?



Thanks Daniel,

    Could you point me to the simplest example of one other back-end? (I
looked into "test" one but don't know if it has been different after
refactoring).

     So, consider VMPlayer as an example, I need simply do a system call
"vmplayer --xxx yyy.vmx" in the driver implementation? Am I understanding it
correctly?
