Using Fedora's Virtualization Packages

Postby aljachimiak » Sun Jun 03, 2012 4:23 am

I had to rebuild my home server and reinstalled Amahi on F14.

During the repo selection, I also added the Fedora Virtualization repo. This didn't work well.

Many problems related to DNS and DHCP. In short the HDA really got confused with those packages installed. Symptoms included (1) non-working graphical install, (2) couldn't sign in to hda with dhcp turned off in my router (3) couldn't ping router with router's dhcp turned off.

Looks like the culprit may have been a vibr0 that was installed before the amahi-install was run.

Anyways...I reinstalled without the extra Virualization package.


Then I downloaded VirtualBox and I was able to spin up an ubuntu LiveCD.

Perhaps only installing the virtualization packages AFTER having Amahi working and functioning well.

The best time to try this again is once we have Fedora 17 and Amahi playing nicely... the packages for F17 are a little less troublesome as far as I've seen. Virtualbox is a great solution if Fedora is to be the Host OS on the hardware... otherwise I would say running Fedora/Amahi as a VM is another great way to go.
