I can't seem to make a rawhide domU work on a RHEL5.2 dom0, because
virt-install doesn't think that there's a valid tree. Looking at it,
there is indeed no images/xen in the tree, are we using the standard
kernel for DomU's now, or is F10 not going to be supported as a domU?
This is on x86_64.
has been available for a few weeks:
on one hand F-8 is near its End Of Life and F8 has been used by
people who needed Xen support. On the other hand libvirt in F-8
is a bit ancient.
I'm unclear if people really want the update before the EOL,
there is a report that this worked fine for Xen users but there is
always a risk of pushing an update like this so late in the cycle.
Opinion welcome, by default I don't plan to push the update to stable
but if people want this, either grab it from testing of just ask here,
I don't have any strong opinion, just keeping the status-quo by default.

In the dom0 I get about ~120MB/sec sequential write speed to a raid10
In the domU I get:
phy to lvm volume on raid10: 22MB/sec
tap:aio to non-sparse file on raid10: ~22MB/sec
I've usually avoided putting anything that needed IO performance on
Xen, but now I had a few applications that'd fit well in Xen but need
a little bit of disk IO. I was surprised just how poorly it works.
Is this kind of performance really what to expect? Anything
configuration that can be done to improve it?
Anyone with experience of how the comparable performance with KVM?

I've been working on the virtualization release notes for Fedora 10
these past several days, and I'm looking for input from those in the
know. The advances coming out of the Emerging Technologies projects and
Fedora in general are very impressive, and I'd like to do them justice.
I added a lot of content quickly yesterday, and the page structure
is by no means solid, but there is a pending freeze on October
10th. I'd like to get it into the best and most accurate shape
possible before then. There will be a chance to make updates again
before the F10 release.
I've attempted to describe the improvements to virtualization-related
packages between the F9 release versions and the anticipated F10
versions. I've created a table of those versions to help with the
comparison. I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know:
* if you believe a version bump is pending
* if I've left out any packages or features
* if I included something not noteworthy
* anything else you have to say
If you have any comments, contributions, or criticisms at all, please
add them to the wiki article/talk page/or email them to me.
Thanks! And keep up the great work!

Hi , guys, I have found in Fedora 10 Features , that there is still a
lot of work to provide xen kernel with dom0 support to Fedora 10 GA.
For my future project, which at 90 percent depends on virtualization
technology I am deciding between XEN or KVM virtualization. I am
experienced XEN user, KVM is new for me. But as I am aware of,
Qumranet was bought by RedHat which predicts something ...
Thanks in advance!
