FAQ
CentOS Virt,

I'm using Farkas' repository, as I'm sure you've guessed. I seem to be
having stability issues.

The parent distro is CentOS 5.2 patched all the way to current, as well as
centos 5.2 for the KVM virtuals.

I have been having random crashes such that the virtual is non-responsive.

Has anyone else been seeing this?

    Did you try kvm-36 from CentOS extras? People had problems with later
    versions we tested, so I opted to freeze KVM in extras for the time
    being, and wait until the upstream vendor integrates it in the main
    distribution.

    CentOS-Virt,

    As a follow up; These issues actually seemed to disappear when I went with
    the e1000 model instead of virtio. I even put the virtuals through some
    heavy load in this configuration with no trouble. Please don't be dissuaded
    by my previous complaint. If you do run into issues with virtio, try using
    e1000 and hopefully your problems will go away.

    Best Regards,
    Michael Schenck
