Hi all,

I recently decided to ditch Virtualbox in favour of KVM. I wanted to 
keep notes about the installation and thought I might as well put it on 
the wiki, so I created the KVM and libvirt howto page.

Some of it is still work in progress, because I need to use it a bit 
more to find out the details. Also, I'm no networking expert ...

One thing I ran into was a certificate error. Apparantly, libvirt wants 
to use a CA certificate, but the default file doesn't exist in 
Slackware. I changed it to use /etc/ssl/certs/cacert.org.pem instead 
which seems to work. Not sure if this causes major problems. I just want 
to use virtual machines on my laptop without any hassle.

Let me know what you think.
