[Libguestfs] ANNOUNCE: libguestfs RHEL 7.1 preview packages available



If you are running RHEL 7 betas or the RHEL 7 Release Candidate[1], or
(in the near future) when RHEL 7 GA or CentOS 7.0 is released, then
you may be interested in previewing the libguestfs packages for RHEL 7.1.

We intend to rebase[2] libguestfs to 1.26 or 1.28 in RHEL 7.1.  This
will deliver many new features[3] including virt-builder,
virt-customize, and the new virt-p2v/virt-v2v, while retaining
complete compatibility with RHEL 7 GA.

To install the preview repository, run the following command as root:

cat >/etc/yum.repos.d/libguestfs-RHEL-7.1-preview.repo <<EOF
[libguestfs-RHEL-7.1-preview]
name=libguestfs RHEL 7.1 preview - x86_64
baseurl=http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs-RHEL-7.1-preview/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
EOF

Then:

  yum install libguestfs-tools

Running 'libguestfs-test-tool' after this is a good idea, since it
will tell you if the new version of libguestfs is working or not.  If
you want to try a more thorough set of tests, then see:

  http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-testing.1.html

These packages are *not* supported by Red Hat.

To go back to the supported packages, uninstall libguestfs, delete the
file /etc/yum.repos.d/libguestfs-RHEL-7.1-preview.repo and install
libguestfs again.

If you find bugs, please let me know or file them in Bugzilla.
