Re: [et-mgmt-tools] virtio support in libvirt and virt-manager?

Hi Again Daniel,

Our design paradigm / goal is not to provide this kind of level of

Thanks for the response. I understand the design decision. As you know, there are many distributions around, and not all are listed in the OS Type&Variant, such as my virtio supported distro Pardus. May I ask:

1) Will we have a choice such as "generic virtio enabled distribution" in the Linux os variants?
2) If we are installing Windows and then we'll install KVM paravirtual virtio drivers, how shall we do?
3) What if a generic distro is installed without virtio first, but then can become virtio-enabled by an initrd configuration file?

Thanks a lot,
