CentOS 5 Comments

Hello List,

Does anyone know why this is not available in CentOS 6.6. I found it in a SL repo but not in CentOS.

I found several CentOS Bugs one answered by JH
saying it had been added to 6.5

But it is still not available.

  • The reason this keeps getting pulled is that it is not in the normal channels we use when comparing to RHEL manifests. So, when we build the list of packages it gets left out.

    I think I should put it in CentOS Extras where it should get carried over when we update.

    It is now in extras, so it should move up on new point releases.

  • Is that also the reason that the Windows VirtIO Drivers are not available in any CentOS repository? They are freely available upstream from I’m actually using Fedora’s virtio-win-0.1-100.iso CD-ROM image, which I find more convenient than where the RPM would install those files. Could something be done to make either the RPM or the .iso a bit easier to find from CentOS?

  • Sure,

    It is not part of RHEL proper .. which is why we are not rebuilding it.

    BUT, can (and likely should) certainly contain article(s) / link(s) to make it easy to install.

    Also, the Virt SIG could build or distribute something .. if they want and if it is redistributable, etc.

    The Docs mail list is where one can ask for wiki acess (to add or change an article about windows support and the fedora iso, etc):

    And the CentOS Virt list would be where to discuss building something
    (if it exists) for those drivers:
