VirtIO Windows Drivers - new installer

as part of the work on oVirt 4.4, the team rewrote the VirtiIO Windows
Drivers installer using the open source framework WiX.
Thanks to the virtio-win maintainer, the new installer is not shipped
anymore within oVirt Guest Tools ISO: it's shipped now directly into VirtIO
Windows ISO[1]

Please give it a run on your testing environment / testing VMs and let us
know about your experience at <a href="mailto: ... at ovirt dot org"> ... at ovirt dot org</a>.

CBS and SIGs consuming CentOS 8 / Stream

how can SIGs start building their packages for the newly released CentOS 8
and CentOS Stream?
CBS seems missing CentOS 8.


CentOS oVirt Guest Image test report

<a href="" title=""></a>
and seems overall functional.
The ovirt-guest-agent service is disabled. Pushed
<a href="" title=""></a> for fixing it,
please review / merge.
I think we can limit the release to the qcow2c image only.

CBS builds for ppc64le and aarch64 not landing on mirrors

yesterday I built adn released qemu-kvm-ev with fixes
for Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data CVE.
The build landed correctly on x86_64 at
<a href=";O=D" title=";O=D">;O=D</a> but it's
still missing on ppc64le at
<a href=";O=D" title=";O=D">;O=D</a> and on
aarch64 at
<a href=";O=D" title=";O=D">;O=D</a>

the build is <a href="" title=""></a> and the
mappings looks correct:

It will help getting ready for oVirt 4.3.

rh-postgresql95-postgresql-9.5.14-1.el7 works for me

not sure how to rpovide feedback to scl sig, but for what it's
worth, rh-postgresql95-postgresql-9.5.14-1.el7 which is in testing works
for me.
Looking forward to see this released.


Packages tagged for release not showing up on mirrors

Hi, cockpit-169-1.el7 <> has
been tagged for release on Jun 19.
I see it published for x86_64:
<a href="" title=""></a>
It's still missing on ppc64le:
<a href="" title=""></a>
and aarch64:

Virt SIG packages tagged for release not landing on altarch mirror.

just noticed that <a href="" title=""></a> ,
which is tagged for release, landed on mirrors for x86_64 but it's missing
in aarch64 and ppc64le.
The same build shows up correctly in buildlogs for those arches.

Can you please check?

Hi, qemu-kvm-ev-2.9.0-16.el7_4.13.1

I'm testing it right now in oVirt CI, if nothing shows up, I'll tag it for
release in a few hours.

qemu-kvm-ev 2.9.0 not yet on

can we please have qemu-kvm-ev pushed to mirrors ASAP?
We tagged it for release while 7.4 was being pushed to mirrors to be picked
up at first sync but looks like it's still hanging somewhere.
It's becoming a serious with people starting upgrading to CentOS 7.4.


SIG content for altarch not landing yet on

I hoped that CentOS 7.4 release would have helped closing gaps between
x86_64 and other arches, but sadly it didn't happen.
What do we need to do for getting the following bugs moving on?
<a href="" title=""></a> - opstools SIG aarch64 and
ppc64le released packages are not published
<a href="" title=""></a> - Virt and OpsTools SIG altarch
packages are not published on
<a href="" title=""></a> - Please establish publishing
pipeline for ovirt 4.0 altarch hierarchy (well, now should be 4.1 not 4.0)

I guess other SIGs are in

oVirt 4.2 preparations - ppc64le repository closure

I'm checking what's missing for repository closure on ppc64le for the
future oVirt 4.2 and I've this:

fluentd packages tagging

I just discovered we have an issue with the package tagging about fluentd.
fluentd-0.12.26-2.el7 <> has
been tagged opstools7-fluentd-012-testing and opstools7-fluentd-012-release
but never got published.
The published package is fluentd-0.12.26-1.el7
<> because
of opstools7-elastic-common-testing and

Now, I don't have a clue on how tagging has been mapped to testing and
release repo but I think we need to fix it.

Initial request was:

License field in spec file, spdx compliance

I was trying today to prepare a single spec file for both Fedora and OpenSuse and hit a small issue on the License field.
Fedora requires license to be shortened as listed in <a href="" title=""></a>
While OpenSuse requires license to be shortened as listed in <a href="" title=""></a>

Being spdx a collaborative project within Linux foundation, I think there may be value in aligning fedora licensing short names with spdx list.
I was going to open bugzilla to track it, then decided to open the discussion here first.
Any thought?

diffs between x86_64 and ppc64le repos: qemu-kvm-ev, cockpit

I'm facing some discrepancies in repositories structure for ppc64le.

In x86_64 qemu-kvm-ev is shipped within
<a href="" title=""></a>
which is the path I was expecting.

Joining OpsTools SIG

I'm working close with OpsTool for oVirt project within VIrt SIG and I can
help with some of the packaging effort there. According to
<a href="" title=""></a>
I'm publishing my interest to join the group and applied through FAS2
system to join the group.


escalating 0012768: [ppc64le] build libvirt-daemon-kvm for 2.0.0-10.el7_3.4 for ppc64le to satisfy oVirt deps

I'd like to escalate <a href="" title=""></a> for oVirt /
Virt SIG.
Right now x86_64 and ppc64le are shipping different versions of libvirt
causing failures in ppc64le deployments / upgrades.
Any chance I can help getting the new libvirt pushed to ppc64le repos?


please add ppc64le arch

looks like opstool target is building aarch64 and x86_64 but not ppc64le.
Can you please add ppc64le as well?
It has been proven building so on CBS side there shouldn't be build issues.


Virt SIG altarch publisher pirpeline

I've opened <a href="" title=""></a> 3 months ago and
didn't progress very much, trying to escalate.

Current status is:
- build packages for ppc64le and aarch64
- received aarch64 testing packages but not the
ppc64le ones
- is not receiving neither aarch64 nor ppc64le

Any chance that we can get this working for Thursday publishing?


CentOS 7.3 aarch64 status

is there any update regarding 7.3 release for aarch64?

Missing qemu deps on ppc64le

just seen:
DEBUG Error: Package:
2:qemu-system-aarch64-2.6.1-1.fc24.ppc64le (updates)
DEBUG Requires: edk2-aarch64
DEBUG Error: Package: 2:qemu-system-x86-2.6.1-1.fc24.ppc64le

While installing qemu on ppc64le Fedora.
Any ETA on fixing it?
