These are done ignoring most of Alpines special features since I don't know enough about them
- make very easy copy of installed alpine system
- turn into domU by extracting fs content and kernel
- fix all small quirks until it boots without any errors and has network
- ensure it makes new ssh host keys on first boot
- verify xen stuff is working:
- eventchannels (shutdown, sysrq)
- cpu hotplug
- save / restore
- live migration
- REMUS (will not work due to kernel limitations, but keep in mind it should work in the year 2525)
- test what breaks after upgrading
- running different kernel from host than is installed... will there still be modules
- what do the update scripts change?
try getting pygrub compatibility¶
compare against stacklet standard image
- using the same boot device?
- bootloader install yes/no?
- fstab, console entries
That image can then be turned over for review / inclusion at stacklet.
go and work out alpine specials
ask users HOW the vm should behave - maybe it should just boot like a cd image and the user will run setup-alpine themselves?
or should it be a nicely deployed vm¶
