Re: [Libguestfs] Virtio-win RPM?



I've had good luck using F14 as a P2V server. You should be able to get the trace output by typing this on the cli on the p2v server itself: "export LIBGUESTFS_TRACE=1". Then, when you kick off the p2v conversion, your p2v server will start spitting out tons of debug logging to stout.
