I have a Debian 9.4 host running KVM.
I need to deploy a
Windows Server 2016 guest. However, the current osinfo definitions only cover up to
Windows Server 2012 R2.
I am aware that the definitions come from the package libosinfo-1.0-0 and I have checked that all packages are up to date with the Debian stable.
Is there a timetable for when the Debian stable will get the
Will getting the latest
libosinfofrom source cause conflicts or compatibility problems with the other debian packages? Does anyone have any experience of doing this?
The package that actually contains the OS definitions is
osinfo-db. The current version, 20180628, is in buster, but not in stretch. It should be safe to pull this package in from testing. But this post has no warranty; if it breaks you get to keep both pieces.
