I’m using Fedora 7 with xen’s virt-manager. I’d manage to install a full virtualized WinXp domU after changing the settings in .xml files. Now I would like to try to install the paravirtualize fedora 7 using virt-manager

I’m using this install media address > http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/i386/os/

And the virt-manager console was managed to show up the installation screen. After the normal steps of the installation, the console was hanged when it shows the ‘Retrieving image2’

It's most probably a network issue.

I even had tried to used the Fedora 7 installation DVD as the installation media but it’s cant detect the cdrom when the installation begins. I’d googled and find out that I can export the DVD using a FTP/NFS/HTTP from dom0 host, but how to do this?


explains how to set up an nfs repo. Specify - nfs:<ip of dom0>:/nfs - when virt-manager asks for the installation source.


According to Sadique, the Fedora 8 seems to have a better and easy virt-manager to manipulate the Xen virtualization. How to upgrade the fedora 7’s virt-manager to fedora 8’s?
