Description of problem:

There is a new kvm release (version 27) from upstream dated 6/3/07. I thought
the existing kvm sources from fedora (version 26-1) could benefit from the
update. I compiled and tested the sources under x86_64: No problem so far.


Just a note: I'm not sure if it's necessary to have a separate kvm package since
it is already build into the latest kernel (build > 2.6.20). Maybe it's
appropriate to automatically install its user based commands (modified qemu
needed by kvm) when virtualized aware cpu is detected.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-09 19:04:45 UTC
Building kvm-27 now.  And the separate package is still needed -- it's what
provides the userspace commands.  The kernel side is all integrated into the
kernel package.

kvm-27 has a nasty oops.  it would be better to revert to kvm-26 (kernel side 
only; userspace may remain kvm-27).

Haven't actually done an update of the kernel piece yet; on my list for this
week, so good to know.  Will probably also pull in the suspend fixes at the same
