KVM-84 Backport Release Candidate

June 24, 2009

Howdy,

On March 17, 2009, I blogged the following call for testing:
http://blog.dustinkirkland.com/2009/03/ubuntu-server-kvm-call-for-testing.html

We have worked through a number of the issues raised after that blog post, and cherry-picked several patches that fix some known bugs. We believe that Ubuntu 9.04’s kvm-84 is a far more complete hypervisor.

This is a call for one more round of testing of a release-candidate build of that package (kvm – 1:84+dfsg-0ubuntu12.1~rc*) in the ubuntu-virt ppa:
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-virt/+archive/ppa

If you are able to assist us with the testing, please add that PPA, and install both the userspace and dkms built kernel module onto your 8.04 and/or 8.10 servers.
$ sudo apt-get install kvm

Please file any bugs against kvm in Launchpad, and please tag them with “kvm-84”.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kvm

The goal is to upload a version of kvm-84 to the hardy-backports and intrepid-backports repositories around July 6, 2009.

Cheers,
