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.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install test-snapd-uvtool, simply use the following command:
