Greetings, libvirt-users ...

I ask for help with virtualizing an ancient machine with a linux kernel 2.2.

I already succeeded doing that but I face random performance issues and
I somehow get lost in all the settings and options.

I am using Virtual Machine Manager:

* I can't chose something like Linux for the OS and 2.2 for the kernel.

Does the combination "linux/2.4 kernel" work or should I choose "Other"
or "Generic" ?

* Later there I get a choice of "Architektur" (or "architecture" ?
german here): for a 32bit-guest, should it be "i686" to reflect the
environment for the guest or "x86_64" to fully use the potential of the

Please forgive my questions, maybe they are FAQ somewhere, I really
fiddled a lot already ...

Thanks, Stefan
