How can I install this format in Centos KVM?. Is it included in latest qemu versions?

Reference in qemu wiki: http://wiki.qemu.org/Features/FVD

Thanks in advice


FVD as in "Forward Versatile Disk" ? If so, you need to convert the DVD image to normal ISO first.

If you mean another format, then please elaborate on what you're after

  • No fvd is Fast Virtual Disk. Reference: wiki.qemu.org/Features/FVD – Juan Ramon Mar 23 '12 at 17:53
  • never heard of it, which solution uses them? – dyasny Mar 23 '12 at 17:54
  • There is a patched version here: sites.google.com/site/tangchq/qemu-fvd. But it is suposed to be included in qemu mainline – Juan Ramon Mar 23 '12 at 17:56
  • ah, the new IBM format, I don't think it'll make it into Centos until it makes it into RHEL first. it's easy enough to monitor - just watch the qemu-img --help output for fvd to appead – dyasny Mar 23 '12 at 18:11
  • no but i have been watching qemu source and it is not there to. I think that is a forgotten format – Juan Ramon Mar 23 '12 at 19:06
