Description Alexander von Gluck IV 2014-02-09 06:01:46 UTC
Description of problem:
Haiku boots and runs well on virt-manager kvm / qemu.  It would be nice if there was an option for a tweaked configuration for it.


OS type: "Other"
Version: "Haiku"

Memory: 512MB default / minimum
CPUs: 1 default

Disk image: 4GB minimum / default

Virt type: kvm
Architecture: x86_64

Virtual disk: virtio bus  (Haiku supports this well at the moment)
Virtual nic: e1000 (Haiku's virtio network driver isn't finished)
Video: default

Haiku has a lot of useful debug data over ttyS0. May want to pipe that somewhere useful.

This patch will likely need rebased in current version. (was applied to virt-manager 0.9.1)

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2014-02-09 13:43:48 UTC
Thanks for the patch. However the os list in virt-manager is frozen because very shortly we are switching over to use libosinfo for this information. Please send a patch to libosinfo, either via bug report or mailing list:
