Description Vinzenz Feenstra [evilissimo] 2014-01-20 13:33:50 UTC
In order to support we need to add the qemu-guest-agent by default to support freezing and thawing the filesystems.

The guest agent will implement a dependency on the package so it is installed when the ovirt-guest-agent is installed.

Merged to u/s master as;a=commit;h=52b97cfbd5f1a4378b0be168ffd8293e29f99f46

Verified using
on CentOS 6.5, Fedora 19 and Fedora 20.

Comment 3 Sven Kieske 2014-03-18 10:31:12 UTC
Well this can bite you, if you want to use the agent on ubuntu and debian.
I didn't find any qemu-ga packages there.
(ubuntu 12.04 and debian 7 aka wheezy).
They both work fine with the ubuntu ppa for 12.04. though.
Can someone point me in the right direction for getting the qemu-ga for ubuntu/ debian?
