Subject Re: What are the System VM Templates for ASF 4.1 Release?
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 06:23:04 GMT
Another work-around may be to not require new systemvms unless the ipv6
feature is required in which case:
A. We provide the bits of the systemvm of whatever Sheng's been testing
with (with the caveat that it is under development/beta)
B. Write a patch for cloud-early-config (or ssh in after VR is created) to
apt-get update + apt-get install <ipv6 packages>
