[libvirt] Re: [Fedora-xen] Fedora 10 Release and Virtualization News


Dale, great stuff. This question is a little late for your release, but I know it will be coming up alot soon, so I hope you can add it to your docs:

Is it possible to run a Fedora 10 pv domU on a Fedora 8 dom0 ?
And if it is, what steps are necessary to be able to install the F10 domU with virt-install and manage it with xm/virsh/etc that differ from what is required to do the same for F7/8/9,etc domUs?

With the standard yum package: python-virtinst-0.300.2-4.fc8
one gets:
ValueError: Invalid URL location given: http://mirror.x.y/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/x86_64/os/images/xen/vmlinuz [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found

when trying to install a Fedora 10 domU due to the integration of the Xen kernel with the normal kernel and virt-install not knowing where to get the kernel. (AFAIK)

Also, as the December EOL for Fedora 8 gets closer, people will have more questions about their options for dom0s - maybe people could submit pros and cons for each option and it could be added to the wiki (maybe as a table/matrix) - so that there is one place to refer people to when the questions arise.

Sorry for the annoying cross post.

The next Fedora Weekly News[1] will be published Monday, one day before
the release of Fedora 10. I would like dedicate a special section of the
Virtualization Beat[2] to touting the advances and new features in F10.

As with the release notes[3], I am seeking your input. (A little late, I
know.) I'm interested not only in the new virtualization features and
breakthroughs found in the F10 release, but also any updates that might
be right around the corner in f10-updates.

Perhaps you have some special insight into the upstream progress of
pv_ops, or maybe you know about a almost complete implementation of a
libvirt API feature into virt-manager or...

I'm sorry if this is a little scattershot. For sometime, I've considered
trying to present questions in interview style to each of these lists,
but I just haven't gotten that together.

The publication deadline is Sunday night, but I'll be able to use
anything in the next edition of FWN. Please contribute, even if you read
this on Monday.
