There's not a build for Rawhide yet, and I don't think Justin will add
them to virt-preview until it's in Rawhide.

Downloading and compiling is very simple.

(1) Download the tarball from:

http://virt-manager.et.redhat.com/download.html

(2) Build it (as non-root):

rpmbuild -ta virt-manager-0.8.6.tar.gz

(3) Install the binary RPM(s), the full path(s) for these are printed
out near the end of step (2).  You have to do this as root:

yum --nogpgcheck install /path/to/RPMS/noarch/virt-manager-0.8.6-1.fc14.noarch.rpm

That works in the above case because virt-manager contains a spec file
inside its source tarball.

The general build method for other Fedora packages is below.

(A) Look for the latest builds of the package:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/search?match=glob&type=package&terms=virt-manager

(B) Download the SRPM of the latest .fc15 (ie. Rawhide) build:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=192052

wget http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/virt-manager/0.8.5/1.fc15/src/virt-manager-0.8.5-1.fc15.src.rpm

(C) Rebuild it (as non-root):

rpmbuild --rebuild virt-manager-0.8.5-1.fc15.src.rpm

(D) Install the binary RPM(s), the full path(s) for these are printed
out near the end of step (C).  You have to do this as root:

yum --nogpgcheck install /path/to/RPMS/noarch/virt-manager-0.8.5-1.fc14.noarch.rpm

One day I'm going to write an RPM / source / patching / tracking
tool which will automate all of this ...
