libvirt backport

July 14, 2009

A big thanks to everyone who has been testing the backport of Jaunty’s kvm-84 to Intrepid and Hardy.

I have backported a bit more of the virtualization stack from Jaunty to Intrepid and Hardy, namely:

  • libvirt 0.6.1

Packages are available in the ~ubuntu-virt PPA:

I’m hoping some of you out there might be willing and interested to do some testing on these new packages. They fix a couple of bugs for me, including installation of Windows guests on Hardy hosts.

Please raise issues and discuss problems in Launchpad and IRC, rather than comments below.

    I can't download his key, keyserver said could'nt connect to host, HTTP fetch error 7, but keyserver is running OK. I run this:

    sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys CE339E50

    what are I doing wrong?
