PLD Linux VM images

I'm creating regularily (with Jenkins CI and Veewee) Vagrant base images (.box).

To use them in Vagrant, see specific usage instructions

The .box files are importable by VirtualBox if renamed to OVA (Open Virtualization Archive) extension (.ova), The convience symlinks are on ftp as well.

To convert images to qemu qcow2 format, extract .box file (it's gnu tar format) and execute:

$ tar xf
$ qemu-img convert -c -O qcow2 box-disk1.vmdk pld64.qcow2
$ qemu-system-x86_64 --enable-kvm -m 512M -drive if=virtio,file=pld64.qcow2

If you get error like qemu-img: 'image' uses a vmdk feature which is not supported by this qemu version: VMDK version 3, you can convert it with VBoxManage and try again:

VBoxManage clonehd box-disk1.vmdk --format VMDK box-disk2.vmdk

The problem is worked on, but not yet in qemu as of 1.7.0.

Grow a disk

The VM contains 80GiB disk in LVM PV, default LVM allocation is rather minimal to get base packages installed and may be small when you actually copy files there.

To increase rootfs by 2GiB:

poldek -u xfsprogs
ldconfig # due rpm5 bug
lvextend --size=+2G /dev/sys/rootfs
xfs_growfs /

Packages listing

Packages listing of the vm image. This is base image, thus containing only packages that you can ssh in
