xenguest-install.py should support multiple NICs and multiple disks
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
When installing a new domU, xenguest-install.py should be able to format a xen
config file that supports multiple NICs and multiple disks. Attached is a
version that does just that.

xenguest-install.py that supports the requested features
xenguest-install has been rewritten a bit and the backend code definitely
supports multiple disks/nics now. The difficult part is how to handle it via
the command line; asking for more than one in the asking questions form of
xenguest-install is going to be very error-prone.
In FC6 and later, xenguest-install.py is replaced by the python-virtinst RPM.
The 0.98.0-1.fc6 release of python-virtinst contains support for multiple nics /
disks. There are no plans to add this in FC5 or earlier because they used the
legacy xenguest-install.py script.
