The Virtualization Ark
An archive of old/ancient virtualization packages, parallel installable & runnable with the main distros package.
Currently it provides builds of:
- Libvirt, versions from 1.2.0 onwards
- QEMU, versions from 1.4.0 onwards
The RPMs are named "$APP-ark-$VERSION", eg "libvirt-ark-1_2_20". Note the version is part of the RPM name, as well as being in the RPM version. This allows multiple versions to be easily installed in parallel
Each package version installs into /opt/$APP/$VERSION, eg /opt/libvirt/1.2.0 or /opt/qemu/2.4.0.
To launch libvirtd
$ sudo /opt/libvirt/1.2.20/sbin/libvirtd
These builds store all their configuration in /opt/libvirt/$VERSION/etc/libvirt, so will not conflict with the main Fedora installed libvirt. As a result though, you need to use the corresponding virsh binary to connect
To test building another app against this version set some environment variables
For libvirtd to pick up a QEMU ark version, it must appear in $PATH before the QEMU from /usr eg
