{{Admon/important|Careful with /var/lib/libvirt/images pathname spelling and size|You must take time to correctly spell the pathname for the '''/var/lib/libvirt/images''' directory. This pathanme is used later to store the virtual machine images from lab2 installs. If you do not take time to properly spell this directory name, you will have to make corrections before proceeding to lab2! |
