At the meeting everyone, including me, learnt something.
Using virt-manager (aka Virtual Machine Manager), and so libvirtd
(libvirt daemon), is definitely the way to go. The package description
of virt-manager on Debian hasn't kept up with its progress, it's great!
Thanks to Alick for letting us know about this.
Advanced networking is also relatively easy using virt-manager. Even
bridged type networking doesn't look too bad. Perhaps Alick or others
could comment on this.
Virt-manager can do the accelerated graphics I demonstrated and is much
faster than when I used the QEMU GUI. In virt-manager for Video
hardware choose Model: Virtio and tick "3D acceleration"; for Display
choose Type: Spice server, Listen type: None, tick OpenGL. I still had
issues with the pointing device in games, removing tablet device helped
but then seem to have a mouse bounding box issue. Anyone know about this?
Virt-manager, by default, creates a "Channel qemu-ga". This can be used
to communicate with `qemu-guest-agent` inside the guest.
Virt-manager can also manage Linux Containers (LXC). We're considering
doing next month's meeting on that. What are you thoughts on this?
