Subject Re: Reg : qemu-kvm upgrade in KVM hypervisor agent
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2019 10:20:01 GMT

No need to alter the spec, once you install centos-release-qemu-ev the next "yum update" will
update your qemu-kvm without breaking rpm deps.
Please note qemu-kvm-ev has more features, but it is not part of CentOS Base. 
It's a community effort and it does not meet the kind of enterprise level of QA you would
expect from stock CentOS packages. Expect problems at some point. In fact I remember someone
had to downgrade recently because of issues (which I do not recall, it's on the ml).
