jmliger/virt7-upstream

Description

Unofficial builds of virtualisation upstream packages for dogfooding development/testing purposes on EL7.

QEMU is provided with two branches, one rebuilt from RHEV7 and the other from latest Fedora, modified for COPR.

Choose yum update qemu-kvm-ev (RHEV7) or yum udpate qemu-kvm-cv (Fedora/COPR) to avoid conflict update.

Libvirt is built with support for Xen on x86_64 (removed since RHEL6) and RBD pool storage (enabled since RHEL7.2).

Hosts with Xen support need special kernels from CentOS, Oracle or Elrepo.

SPICE and Mesa are built with support for VirtIO-GPU with 3d (VirGL), both host and guest.

Hosts need VirGLrenderer, Libepoxy, Mesa and QEMU >= 2.5.
Guests need VirtIO-GPU updates present in kernels >= 4.4.
