Re: [libvirt] network domain name patch

Retrying- I do not think that the last one pasted correctly.

Actually, it is part of libvirt. Whoever did it (sorry, I don't know who did it so cannot give them the credit they deserve) definately did the hard part and made it work. I just added the ability to have your virtuals have a FQDN.

I will work on updating the documentation if that has not already been done.

Sorry about missing the memory leak.

This is a followup to the excellent patch which allows static IP
address assignment.  The problem with that patch is that you can
only set the host name and cannot set a FQDN because dnsmasq will,
as a security measure, not allow it unless --domain is specified.

I didn't know that anyone was using that patch (and surely it doesn't
apply cleanly to recent libvirt versions).  If this is being actively
used then it should be part of libvirt ...
