Based on some feedback from the IRC meeting yesterday, I've scaled back

This looks very nice, Garrett.
The minimum RAM for ovirt is 4GB. You can get by with less, but the
engine-setup script won't run if it detects less RAM. There is a command
line argument, --no-mem-check, that disables the minimum memory check.
If we're going for simplicity, we may want to go with the
ovirt-engine-setup-plugin-allinone as the suggested package to install.
This way, you come out of these directions ready to create and run VMs.
For a complete setup, it may be that the steps required are too many to
include on this page. We could link to the quick start guide here:
Right now, oVirt only works with Fedora and CentOS/RHEL. We shouldn't
give people the wrong idea about multi-distro possibilities. Someone
could get the engine app running on jboss on a different platform, but
vdsm, an essential component for doing anything w/ ovirt, is very much
tied to fedora/el right now.
I really like the "you can help us make ovirt easy to run everywhere"
link -- we need that help!
It's based on what is currently on oVirt.org
, with some minor changes:
• simplification of the installation steps
• inclusion of system requirements and some summary text at the top
As I wanted to communicate what each section would say, I wrote some
filler text that should be somewhat close to the idea of what we might
want to use. However, the text on this page is very rough in comparison
to the other pages, so please keep this in mind.
Also, I should note that the original download design (for comparison)
...and the background thoughts behind the original download page are at:
Thanks! I'm looking forward to your feedback!
