Virtual networking

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Dan I have been discussing how to “fix virtual networking”, not just Xen’s networking but also getting something sane wrt. QEMU/KVM etc.

Anyone interested should read this writeup. To discuss, libvirt-list is probably the best place.

QEMU Networking

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

QEMU has a number of really nice ways to set up networking for its guests. It can be a little bewildering to figure out how each of the options work, so I thought I’d write up what I found. Excuse the ‘orrid ascii art :-)

GNOME SVN and jhbuild

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

If you’re wondering how to move your GNOME jhbuild from CVS now that the SVN migration has happened … here’s what I had to do.

  • Checkout jhbuild from SVN:
      $> mkdir -p /gnome/head/svn && cd /gnome/head/svn
      $> svn co svn+ssh:// jhbuild
      $> make install
  • Update ~/.jhbuildrc so that e.g.
      repos[''] = 'svn+ssh://'
      checkoutdir = '/gnome/head/svn'
  • Copy /gnome/head/cvs/pkgs to /gnome/head/svn/pkgs so that you won’t have to download as many new tarballs
  • Run jhbuild build

Note, this is with the gnome-2.18 moduleset. Things are still a little in flux right now.
