Description Jonathan Underwood 2007-12-04 20:24:45 EST
Description of problem:
Currently in F-8 we have a fairly old kvm: kvm-36-7.fc8. Upstream is on release
55 which works with the currently shipped F-8 kernels, and contains several
bugfixes and enhancements. Any chance of an update?
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2007-12-04 20:31:14 EST
Unlike Xen,  KVM is a part of the standard Linux kernel tree, and as such is
shipped as part of the main kernel package. Separate kernel module RPMs are no
longer permitted in Fedora, so KVM kernel modules are synced to whatever is in
the kernel RPM. While in theory we could update the userspace, and not the
kenrel space, this is a untested combination and undesirable unless there's a
serious concrete problem it solves.

So no KVM updates are planned until next kernel release (2.6.24) appears in an
F8 update.
