Am I reading this correctly, that my "test system" could be a virtual
guest F9 system (I have a virtual F9 i386 system running on my F9
x86_64 host, under VirtualBox, could I use that for testing?)
That's a good question. Someone brought this point up earlier. I was
going under the assumption that your "test system" would need to be a
bare metal system. But given the nature of the VirtRemoteInstall
feature, I suspect it may be possible to run virt-manager from inside a
guest to connect to a virt-manager running on a bare metal system.
If you are able to try this, I'd be interested in hearing your results.
