Description Perry Myers 2011-02-02 15:30:40 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #674658 +++

Description of problem:
For Matahari usage we need a virtio-serial device created by default (along with the channel) so that the user doesn't have to worry about configuring this manually.

Channel name should be "org.apache.qpid.matahari.0"

The initial guest OS types that should have this device/channel by default are:

RHEL5
RHEL6
Fedora 14+ (older Fedora's support virtio-serial but we don't anticipate porting the AMQP/virtio-serial transport plugin back further than F14)
Windows (all types)

virtinst has been merged into virt-manager.git. Moving all virtinst bugs to the virt-manager component.
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2013-07-23 15:16:50 EDT
Matahari is dead so this isn't really relevant anymore.
