  1. So I didn't get that far in into this video but you should always move the /var/lib/libvirt/images to the /home/usernamehere or to some other drive.. if you did not set the size of /var when you was installing the OS…

    I say this due to I run KVM on CentOS 7

  2. I don't know alot about linux, but I would like to get it to know. Right now I run my VMs in hyper-v on a Win 10 box. I like that I'm able to run a type 1 hypervisor on the same box as I use as a desktop. I this the Linux way to do that?

  3. man, i just came across this video and i have to say that it was friggin awesome. you can never give too much information and i love the fact that you explain every little detail and give little tips and tricks. these are all the things that most people take for granted when doing tutorials and i end up having to write down a bunch of notes of commands and such to look up later because they didn't explain and assumed you knew. keep up the good work! and if you do IRC come on over to the jupiter broadcasting irc channel on channel jupiterbroadcasting. you'd fit right in with us linux admins and enthusiasts!

  4. Great video I will sure be playing with this. I would add one tip for copy/paste using the keyboard you should try to use ctrl+insert for copy and shift+insert for the paste its been in every OS for many years in Linux and BSD and Unix since the beginning and it works in Windows and depending on the keyboard also works on Macs. This way of copy and pasting also works with terminals, all applications and most VMs..

  5. Hi Dan!   Your video help me with KVM.   I just have one question for you.   Do you know about Cloud-Init ( )?   It's basically a standard developed by Ubuntu, adopted by Amazon AWS and all other Linux distr.   Cloud-Init is a standard that specified a long string that is passed to new instances being created.   The string has more configuration and provisioning (you can install even more things on instance).   My question to you is:  Did you see any place where the user can specify the Cloud-Init string for the instance in KVM or Xen.    Cloud-Init is in Oracle VirtualBox already.

  6. Great job with the video. Personally I like the extra detail you take time to explain even though for some it becomes distracting.  For those, I say just use the arrow key to fast forward.

  7. Sorry you have gone it to way too much detail in this tutorial. Anyone who is going to be installing a VM on KVM is going to know about tab completion
