KVM-84 Backport Release Candidate


On March 17, 2009, I blogged the following call for testing:

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:

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".

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