Is there a good location for documentation?
It seems difficult to make a new ISO available, or I chose a poor way.
- I downloaded from an FTP site requiring non-anonymous authentication
- I scp'd it to root@host
you scp it, so I think maybe only root can access
Actually we can let kimchi set qemu to access this ISO, by "setfacl"
command. but on some distro this may fail.
kimchi can also set all users to access ISO, but this is not good. only
user can decide who can access it.
- I tried to use it from there, but I got permission denied
"KCHISO0008E: The hypervisor doesn't have permission to use this ISO
- the message above recommends copying the file to /var/lib/libvirt,
but I think you actually have to copy it to /var/lib/libvirt/images
yes, you can copy it to /var/lib/libvirt/images or make a new path
/var/lib/libvirt/iso, and copy it to this new path. it should OK
- you also need to "chown qemu" the ISO image
After the above steps, it finally became visible and usable.
- The above error message appears as a bright pop-over with a nice 'X'
for dismissing, but it automatically disappears so quickly, it's
impossible to read the entire message
- in the "Edit Template" dialog, what is "CPU Number"? I presume that
is "number of (virtual) processors"?
- in the "Edit Template" dialog, what are the units for "Memory"? It
is apparently megabytes, but that should be noted
Patch send. thanks.
