Ubuntu virtualisation front-end for libvirt and KVM - for checkbox
uvtool provides a unified and integrated VM front-end to Ubuntu cloud image downloads, libvirt, and cloud-init.
uvt-kvm uses the volume storage pool maintained by uvt-simplestreams-libvirt(1) as a basis to provide quick start and management of Ubuntu VMs by wrapping libvirt and cloud-
uvt-kvm is not intended to wrap all possible use cases. Where possible, it provides access to some more advanced cases using options to override entire sections of default op‐
eration, such as the ability to directly override the backing volume image used, the libvirt domain definition, cloud-init metadata and userdata, and directly provide a net‐
work-config file. For yet more complex cases, it is expected that the user will call libvirt directly (for example by using virsh(1)), and use uvt-kvm for only the simpler
operations required on affected VMs. See ADVANCED OVERRIDE OPTIONS and ADVANCED USAGE for details.
In the current state this isn't exposing the full capabilities of qemu/libvirt/uvtool, but instead is meant to be used
for consumption by the checkbox verification framework.
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.2 for openSUSE_Leap_15.1, openSUSE_Leap_15.0, or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
