Two good news.

Developers fixed the bug in latest master, so I updated the
ovirt-guest-agent package for Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) to 1.0.8. This
package should be OK to use with 12.04 (Precise) as well.

I also wrote a Debian specific SysV init script for the guest agent.I
tested in my Debian Wheezy guest. There is a small problem,
luanchpad.net does not support hosting Debian packages, and for each
package per Ubuntu release, it hosts the latest version. So I upload the
Debian specific oVirt guest agent package as a Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise)

You can dowanlod them from the following link.

In all, the ovirt-guest-agent-1.0.8 (Raring) package is for both Ubuntu
Raring and Precise. The ovirt-guest-agent-1.0.8 (Precise) is for Debian.

Thanks and best regards!
