Meeting – Virtual machines

Replaced two computers in the computer suite.
Added a quad core without processor VT support. This has Suse installed plus Xen for virtualisation work.
Also added a dual core with VT support, this has Fedora and the Kernel virtual machine (KVM)installed.
KVM has to have VT extensions in the cpu to work, Xen doesn’t.

At 10-30, two new faces arrived, Welcome… Jon, and his son Jordan.
We spent most of the morning talking about the nature of the Blackpool LUG.
Jon has been involved with LUG’s and LUG events in Uganda, and I look forward to hearing more stories about how things are done there.

Jon had read about Colin and tinycore, and was interested to see tinycore in action on the ‘sacrificial machine’, he was was suprised at the fast startup, and the speed in general.

Prior to jon and Jordan arriving,

Fedora 14 was installed as a virtual machine in KVM on the newly added dual core,

and openSuse 11 was installed on the quad core as a virtual machine in Xen.
