Re: [Libguestfs] Virtio-win RPM?



Well, we tried our P2V again, this time with a copy of virtio-win.iso in /usr/share/virtio-win that I put in by hand.  Just like before, it died again after 3+ hours.  Here is what I put in place by hand.  It was a shot in the dark.

[root FedoraP2V virtio-win]#
[root FedoraP2V virtio-win]# rpm -qa | grep virtio
[root FedoraP2V virtio-win]#
[root FedoraP2V virtio-win]# yum install virtio-win

OK, I'm being verbose:

This link:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/Virtualization_Guide/chap-Virtualization-KVM_Para_virtualized_Drivers.html

says:

> Download the virtio-win package with the yum command. 
> # yum install virtio-win

>
> The drivers are also from Microsoft (windowsservercatalog.com). 

> The virtio-win package installs a CD-ROM image, virtio-win.iso, in the /usr/share/virtio-win/ directory.


OK wonderful, I can follow a cookbook.  If only the recipe were right.

[root FedoraP2V bin]#

[root FedoraP2V bin]# yum list available | grep virtio
[root FedoraP2V bin]#
[root FedoraP2V bin]# yum install virtio-win
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

No package virtio-win available.

[root FedoraP2V bin]#

I know yum is good on this system because I just did a yum update and it applied 600+ updates.  

So this is the next thing I'm going to try - I have copies of virtio-win.iso all over the place.  I'll just put one in /usr/share/virtio-win by hand and then we'll kick off another P2V and see how it goes.
