- Remove unneeded createrepo build dependency (bsc#1082689)
- builder-repository: fix SLES short id computation
Patch added:
- Fix handling of Latin-1 encoding in rpmdb (bsc#1075803)
Patches added:
2018-02-23 -
- Remove dependency on wodim for openSUSE:Factory and use cdrtools
2018-02-09 -
- update to version 1.38.0:
* Virt-builder-repository is a new tool allowing end users to
create and update virt-builder repositories. (fate#318952)
* Virt-rescue has been substantially rewritten, implementing job
control, -m and -i options, escape keys, etc.
* Virt-builder planner has been improved so that faster and more
efficient build plans are chosen for complex cases, especially when
either the tmpdir or output is on networked storage.
* Virt-customize now sets a random /etc/machine-id for Linux guests, if
one is not already set.
* Virt-df now works correctly on filesystems with block sizes smaller
than 1K.
* Virt-dib has further compatibility enhancements with diskimage-builder.
* Virt-sysprep removes "DHCP_HOSTNAME" from ifcfg-* files.
* Virt-resize now correctly copies GPT partition attributes from the
source to the destination. (bsc#1074585)
* Bash tab completion implemented or enhanced for: virt-win-reg,
* Both virt-v2v and virt-p2v are now able to pass through the source CPU
vendor, model and topology.
* Virt-v2v now supports encrypted guests.
* Virt-v2v now detects the special Linux Xen PV-only kernels correctly
* Virt-v2v -o glance now generates the right properties for UEFI guests
* Virt-v2v -o null now avoids spooling the guest to a temporary file,
instead it writes to the qemu "null block device".  This makes it
faster and use almost no disk space.
* Virt-v2v -i libvirtxml can now open network disks over http or https.
* Virt-v2v will now give a warning about host passthrough devices
* Inspection support was rewritten in OCaml and included inside the
daemon.  This makes inspection considerably faster, more robust and
more easily extensible in future.
* The libguestfs API is now thread-safe (although not parallel).  You can
call APIs on the same handle from multiple threads without needing to
take a lock.
