Fedora 17 Production Release: Templates and Images Ready for Download Now

The Fedora project announced Fedora 17 yesterday. We have released lightweight and Xfce desktop images and templates for VMWare, QEMU/KVM, Xen and SolusVM (Xen PV) on x86 and x86_64 architectures. A lightweight x86_64 template for XenServer/Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) is also available.

Preview: Fedora 17, Beta Release for Xen, XCP, VMWare and KVM

In anticipation of next month's release of Fedora 17 we have created a limited set of images to help participate in the beta program and explore the new options and features. Currently there are desktop and CLI images for VMWare, KVM and Xen and a CLI XVA template for XCP/XenServer. These are all 64-bit versions.

WARNING: Some users will not be able to boot the xen and/or xva templates due to a bug in Fedora 17's glibc that appears to conflict with some CPUs when run under Xen PV. There are no known workarounds at this time.

UPDATE (2012-05-14): The latest glibc has been patched to fix the Xen domU issue mentioned above. The CLI Xen image and XVA template have been rebuilt. These will probably be the last builds prior to the production release on May 29th (which may be delayed again by upstream).

UPDATE (2012-05-29): Fedora 17 (Beefy Miracle) is gold. We are populating the repo now:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) SolusVM Xen PV Templates Ready for Download

Ubuntu has released the latest "Long Term Support (LTS)" version of their Linux distribution, code-named Precise Pangolin. The SolusVM Xen PV templates are now ready in desktop and CLI versions for both architectures.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise for SolusVM on x86-64
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Xfce Desktop for SolusVM on x86-64
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise for SolusVM on x86

The kernel inside the template is vmlinuz-3.2.0-24-virtual from the linux-image-virtual package. The templates are bootable using pygrub or xen PVOPS but will not boot under the SolusVM EL5 2.6.18 kernel. Please read the kernel howto for a summary of your options (scroll to the end).

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) Images and Templates Ready for Download

Ubuntu has released the latest "Long Term Support (LTS)" version of their Linux distribution, code-named Precise Pangolin. Our first set of images and templates are available now. We have lightweight CLI images for Xen, VMWare and KVM in 32 and 64-bit versions and also an XVA template for XenServer/XCP (64-bit only as usual). Additionally we have Xfce 4.8 desktop images available for Xen, VMWare and KVM in 32 and 64-bit versions.

The SolusVM Xen PV templates are undergoing testing and will be ready this week. (Note: our KVM images are not intended for deployment on SolusVM, which as of this writing does not have a templating mechanism for KVM. This feature is planned - or at least rumored - for version 2 of the control panel but we don't have any details.)
