KVM debian wheezy packages with ceph support

mongo533 asked:

Does anybody know any packages out there for kvm which are compiled with RBD support?

I have these installed right now:

ii  kvm                              1:1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u8         amd64        dummy transitional package from kvm to qemu-kvm
ii  qemu-kvm                         1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u8           amd64        Full virtualization on x86 hardware
ii  libvirt-bin                      1.2.9-9~bpo70+1               amd64        programs for the libvirt library
ii  libvirt-clients                  1.2.9-9~bpo70+1               amd64        programs for the libvirt library
ii  libvirt-daemon                   1.2.9-9~bpo70+1               amd64        programs for the libvirt library
ii  libvirt-daemon-system            1.2.9-9~bpo70+1               amd64        Libvirt daemon configuration files
ii  libvirt0                         1.2.9-9~bpo70+1               amd64        library for interfacing with different virtualization systems
ii  python-libvirt                   1.2.1-2~bpo70+1               amd64        libvirt Python bindings

Building kvm on my own seems to be very difficult since it has many dependencies including gui libraries.

Thank you!

My answer:


qemu, libvirt and virt-manager support RBD on Fedora.

Interestingly I did not see support on CentOS 7.
