Hi Florian,

I use JEOS (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Ubuntu_JeOS). With qcow2 format this has a very small footprint, boots quickly and works very well with OpenNebula. JeOS optionally supports ACPI (you have to specify the corresponding package to be included when you build the image).

vmbuilder kvm ubuntu -v --debug --suite=lucid --flavour=virtual --iso=ubuntu.iso
--mirror=<yourMirror> -o --ip=dhcp --firstboot=/home/carsten/jeo
s/boot.sh --part=vmbuilder_noswap.partition
--addpkg=vim-nox --addpkg=unattended-upgrades --addpkg=acpid --addpkg=
openssh-server -a amd64

Subject: [one-users] ACPI-enabled VM image (with small footprint)

Can someone give me a hint about an ACPI-enabled Linux variant with a very small footprint? I understand that the provided TTY LInux is not ACPI enabled and for this reason it cannot be live-migrated or shutdown. Or, is it possible to install ACPI support in TTY Linux?

Best regards,
