OK. So we have kvm running with libvirtd and an up to date Centos 5.3 64 bit
vm running now with internal networking.

This works (you obviously need access here and I need to add you to the libvirtd user group).

virt-viewer --connect qemu+ssh://ghenry@fermat.openldap.org/system centos5.3-64

You can ssh to it from fermat too (ip provided offlist or via ifconfig using above).

Will move on to the build/test framework later.

Yeah, was looking into that and even tried solaris10 sparc. Of course, no joy.
