Defining VM's using Centos6/KVM as host

Post by powrrrplay » 2011/09/19 14:44:11

Hello, I would like to convert to centos6 w/ KVM.

One of the virtual machines i would like to define is ubuntu 10.04. Problem is that the KVM bundled with centos6 does not recognize ubuntu 10.04. any thoughts on how i could define an ubuntu 10.04 virtual machine using centos6/kvm as the host?

I can't be the only one that wants to define an ubuntu 10.04 guest on centos6 kvm.

Is there no solution?

I don't have a 64 bit CentOS 6 to play with at the moment but when I use virt-install with xen on CentOS 5 it has options like generic26 and also ubuntujaunty (the most recent ubuntu listed) and I don't think they make the blindest bit of difference to how it sets it up.

Sir, you seem to be correct. I defined ubuntu 10.04 as linux ubuntu 9.04/jaunty. Seems to be running ok thus far.
