Description Need Real Name 2006-10-26 16:15:57 EDT
The virt-manager says, on the first screen:
 "[choose] whether the VM will be fully virtualised or para-virtualised"

But there is no option for this.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2006-10-26 16:53:54 EDT
The choice for paravirt/fully virt in the wizard is hidden/skipped) if the CPU
in the host system does not support the AMD-V or Intel-VT extensions required
for fullyvirt. Perhaps we should either clarify the language in the first page
to add this not about fully-virt only being available with hardware support, or
perhaps show the option screen of the wizard, but with fully-virt option disabled.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2006-10-26 16:55:39 EDT
The first option is better, and it would be good if the skip was shown, but
greyed out.
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2006-11-06 11:39:16 EST
In latest upstream code, we always show the step with the para/fully virt
choice. On systems not supporting fully virt, the fully virt option is disabled,
and an explanatory note is displayed telling the user they either have no CPU
support, or it is disabled by the BIOS.

Will get this into an FC6 errata
