Virtual Machine Manager ======================= This application provides a graphical tool for managing virtual machines via the libvirt library. The front end of the application uses the PyGTK / Glade libraries for all user interaction components. The back end uses libvirt for managing Xen, QEMU & KVM virtual machines. The UI is primarily tested with Xen and QEMU, but is intended to be portable to any virtualization backend libvirt supports. So when libvirt is ported to UML / VMware / etc the UI should not require any significant changes to deal with these drivers. Terminology ----------- In prose this app should be referred to as 'Virtual Machine Manager'. For source / RPM packaging, & the command name, it is called by the shortened form 'virt-manager' Pre-requisite software ---------------------- Where versions are noted below these are the versions tested to definitely work. For some of them you may be able to run with earlier releases, so please report any success to the mailing lists python >= 2.4 pygtk2 >= 1.99.12-6 gnome-python2-gconf >= 1.99.11-7 libvirt-python >= 0.4.0 dbus-python >= 0.61 gnome-keyring >= 0.4.9 gnome-python-desktop >= 2.15.4 libxml2-python >= 2.6.23 vte >= 0.12.2 gtk-vnc >= 0.0.1 python-virtinst >= 0.300.0 PolicyKit >= 0.6 The latter is available from http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/python-virtinst.git Contact ------- All comments / suggestions / patches should be directed to the virt-tools-list mailing list: http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/virt-tools-list For bug reporting info, see: http://virt-manager.org/page/BugReporting There are further project details on the website: http://virt-manager.org/ Submitting patches ------------------ Patches should be submitted either as unified diffs: tar zxvf virt-manager-X.Y.Z.tar.gz cp -a virt-manager-X.Y.Z virt-manager-X.Y.Z-myfeature cd virt-manager-X.Y.Z-myfeature ... make some changes .. cd .. diff -ruN virt-manager-X.Y.Z virt-manager-X.Y.Z-myfeature \ > myfeature.patch Alternatively use git and submit a diff against the main source repository: git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/virt-manager.git cd virt-manager ... make your changes ... git commit -a -m "Some changelog message" git show > my_feature.patch Then mail the 'my_feature.patch' file to the email@example.com list, with [PATCH] and a brief description in the subject.
