Re: [Libguestfs] Virtio-win RPM?

OK - thanks.  I just now saw this.  Our P2V still blew up, even when I
put that .ISO file where I think it's supposed to go.  

The Fedora docs say to do yum install virtio-win.  Should I log a
bugzilla about that?

Until RHEL 6.3, is Fedora pretty much the only way to make this work or
is there a better solution?  And if Fedora, is Fedora 14 still the best
release for this or should I be looking at something newer for a
migration server?

We don't have an RPM for Fedora.  It wouldn't be possible to add this
to Fedora right now since we cannot yet cross-compile it from source
using a completely Free toolchain.  In future we probably will be able
to do this with mingw64.

The latest virtio-win ISO images are here:
